    IL Gov. proposes tax hike on tobacco

    Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker is proposing a tax hike for cigarettes.

    Pritzker suggested raising the tax by 32 cents-per-pack.

    Abra Young is a cashier at an Ayerco in Quincy.

    Young said a tax hike would influence people to buy across the river to avoid the tax.

    "We'll probably see an increase in people doing that," Young said.

    The state tax on cigarettes is currently $1.98 per pack.
