  • Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis charged that Mayor Bill de Blasio’s policies “are hurting this city.”

De Blasio made the announcement during anti-smoking event in the city.

A fifth of adult Staten Islanders smoke cigarettes, according to a 2015 city health survey.

The other bills would create a new e-cigarette license and require residential buildings to create a smoking policy.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a proposal Wednesday to raise the base price form $10.50 to $13 a pack. "These companies have used the same playbook for decades, and we can no longer sit by while the next generation becomes addicted", said Mayor Bill de Blasio". The legislation establishes the first price floor and tax for other tobacco products such as cigars, smokeless tobacco, loose tobacco and tobacco-containing shisha-and enforces a 10 percent tax on other tobacco products for the first time, with the resulting revenues going toward the beleaguered New York City Housing Authority, which faces federal funding cuts under President Donald Trump.

At the current price of $10.44 a pack, NY state's cigarettes are already the most expensive in the country, followed by those in Connecticut, Hawaii and Alaska. Crain's NY found that fully half of the city's cigarettes are illegal, meaning their sellers avoid paying state or city taxes (or both). That's more than the 14.2 percent spent annually by households in the same income bracket nationally. The proposed move would make NYC home to the highest-priced cigarettes in the country.

In addition to increasing disproportionately the living expenses of New York City's poor, the new proposals attack e-cigarette smokers.

By sheer coincidence (if you are completely ignorant to even the most basic concepts of economics), NY has the highest rate of cigarette smuggling in the country.

Cabrera's anti-e-cigarette agenda flies in the face of the general agreement that e-cigarettes are safer than smoking.
