LOUISIANA (FOX44) - Another one of Governor Jindal's ideas failing in the house's final moments.

The state's four cent renewal on the cigarette tax will now be in your hands.

The bill which has been very controversial in the past weeks was added into a Constitutional Amendment supporting tops.

Jindal vetoed the bill last week saying he didn't support a new tax.

The house failed to override the veto several days later.

You will decide on the measure on October 22nd.
