Prop B to Help Savannah

School District officials across Missouri say their schools could benefit from the passage of Proposition B in November.

Proposition B would increase the cigarette tax by 73 cents a pack and generate 283 million dollars each year. One district in northwest Missouri estimates passage of the ballot issue would provide their district 378 to 565 thousand dollars each year. Savannah School Superintendent David Bray says the additional money would benefit his district in a number of ways.

Bray adds Proposition B is not only good for the health of Missouri residents, but good for the children that are served in Missouri schools.
