The Prop B Bus Tour will be passing through Lee’s Summit to hold a press event with public schools and community leaders to discuss Prop B and the benefits it will provide the local community. Prop B will help improve health in Missouri by reducing smoking and provide new funding for Missouri’s public schools, colleges and universities through a .73 cent tax increase per pack of cigarettes and increased taxes on other tobacco products. Prop B will generate $283 million in new revenue annually, 80% of which will be dedicated to Missouri’s public schools, colleges and universities.
