The Isle of Wight County board of supervisors wants the General Assembly to pass legislation, letting counties tax cigarette users.

Right now, only cities and towns have the right, not counties.

Rockingham County's board endorsed the idea Wednesday night. The board says it does not support the cigarette tax, it supports having the power to tax. Board members say it's a matter of equality.
