This article reports about the pact signed by eighteen tribes with Washington State on taxing cigarette sales. 17 agreements are similar to each other but the agreement of Pullyalup, Washington, is different and must be approved by the legislature and governor. That agreement alone is expected to yield $10 million for the state. The agreements will cover 90 percent of the cigarettes sold on tribal lands.
