(INDIANAPOLIS) - A coalition of health and business leaders has been lobbying to triple Indiana's cigarette tax to three dollars a pack, but the House rejected the idea.

No one at the statehouse is willing to flatly pronounce the idea dead, but Senate President Pro Tem Rod Bray says it's unlikely to make a comeback.

Bray does say there's "no doubt" legislators will raise the tax "at some point."

But he says that point probably won't come this year.

He says one problem is that it's not clear how the money from a cigarette tax hike would be spent.
