03 Oct Contact Your Elected Officials in Support of the Premium Cigar Exemption
For several years, your representatives at the International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) worked diligently to prevent regulation by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Despite our efforts, FDA’s “Deeming Rule” regulating cigars and other tobacco products took effect on August 8, 2016. IPCPR is pursuing legal and legislative alternatives to protect our members from devastating regulation. We need your help to advance a legislative correction!
Language that would exempt premium cigars from FDA regulation was supported in a bi-partisan fashion by the House Appropriations Committee. Please click the buttons below to contact your Senators and Representative to request their support for this important provision. YOUR elected officials will ultimately determine whether or not a premium cigar exemption is included in an omnibus bill in December.
