The article reports on the plea of Cuyahoga County officials in Ohio for voters in the November 2006 elections to cast their votes for a 30-cent per-pack tax increase on cigarettes to give additional $20 million in revenues. The increase is expected to be effective for 10 years and will be used to finance grants for art and cultural activities. The county failed to win the voters' approval in 2004 for a property tax increase that would have aided their economic development projects.
