$1.97 per pack cigarette tax

A $1.10-per-pack hike in cigarette taxes, up to $1.97, which would give California the largest tobacco tax in the nation. The increase would bring in $1.2 billion a year toward Davis' goal of erasing a total projected budget deficit of $34.8 billion.

Wow. I had to read 5 articles to make sure that it was "$1.10 tax hike" and not "tax hike to $1.10."
