Alaska Governor Vetoes Vape Tax Bill


Earlier this year, both houses of Alaska’s state legislature passed a bill that would impose a statewide tax on vaping products, and prevent U.S. Mail delivery within the state.

Now Governor Mike Dunleavy is considering whether to sign bill SB 45 into law or veto it.

The governor has until Sept. 16 to decide. If he does nothing, the bill will pass automatically, and take effect on Jan. 1, 2023. If Gov. Dunleavy signs the bill or allows it to become law, he will have broken a 2018 campaign promise to not pass any new taxes over 25 percent.

Alaska residents can call the governor’s office at 907-465-3500 to register opposition, or email the governor using CASAA’s call to action. CASAA has created a prewritten message asking the governor to veto the bill, which can be modified to explain your quitting story, or discarded altogether and replaced with a personal message.
