Wisconsin would have the nation's third-highest cigarette tax under Gov. Jim Doyle's new state budget.

He proposed a 75-cent increase last night, on top of the $1 hike which took effect just 13.5 months ago. It would make the state tax $2.52. And it would come soon after a federal increase of 61 cents that's due to take effect April 1.
