In their first budget proposal, Gov. J.B. Pritzker and his administration are considering a tax on e-cigarettes to generate revenue for Illinois. Deputy Gov. Dan Hynes told Politico that the budget transition committee is looking for models of a vaping tax that could be applied statewide. In Chicago last year, for example, the tax on e-cigarettes increased from 80 cents to $1.50 per container and from 55 cents to $1.20 per milliliter of liquid nicotine.
