The Board of Governors, with one abstaining, voted to be in favor of the bill that could raise tax for cigarettes.
If it should pass, Prop B is expected to generate extra revenue for higher education.
Universities in Missouri are looking at an $84 million boost from the tobacco tax.
For Missouri Western, they are looking at a much welcomed two million dollars to give them a good boost.
"That additional revenue can make a tremendous impact on the quality of services that we provide to our students and the region," said Kent Heier, assistant director for public relations at MWSU.
Proposition B plans to raise the tax on a pack of cigarettes by 73 cents from a nationwide low 17 cents per pack.
