State Senator George Winner (R-C-I, Elmira) voted last night in opposition to legislation authorizing a $1.60-a-pack increase in the state tax on cigarettes, making it the nation's highest.

In debate on the floor of the Senate late yesterday, Senator Winner noted that the tax increase will hurt area convenience stores and other small businesses.
