Cape Girardeau residents can show their support tomorrow for a new proposition aimed at improving health and supporting public schools in Missouri.  The Prop B Bus tour will stop at Capaha Park for a rally on the initiative.  It will raise cigarette taxes by 73-cents per pack and increase taxes on other tobacco products.  A majority of the money raised will go back into the public education system.  Show-Me A Brighter Future Spokesperson Misty Snodgrass tells KZIM-KSIM they are already experiencing a lot of support. Prop B will generate $283-million in new revenue annually.  80-percent of money raised will be put back into Missouri’s public schools, colleges and universities.  The rally begins at 9:30 AM and will have a series of local leaders to speak.  Learn more at
