22 Feb Virginia: Contact Your Senator This Morning Regarding H.B. 2220

Yesterday, the Virginia Senate defeated House Bill 2220 by a 10 – 30 voteHowever, the Senate is expected to reconsider H.B. 2220 today at 10:30 a.m. With the General Assembly scheduled to adjourn on February 25, this is your last chance to make a difference. Contact your state Senator this morning to request support for H.B. 2220! CLICK HERE to identify and view contact information for your state Senator.

H.B. 2220 establishes a mixed beverage retail cigar shop license, permitting qualified tobacconists to serve wine, beer, or mixed beverages for on-premises consumption. Utilize the following talking points for H.B. 2220 when contacting your state Senator:

  • Helps in-state retailers compete with neighboring states
  • Provides adults a place enjoy a drink and a cigar which has not been possible since the smoking ban
  • Limits licensure eligibility to only true retail tobacco shops
  • Increases sales revenue and thus the amount of taxes remitted to the state
