Oppose Senator Durbin's Premium Cigar Tax Increase Legislation Today!
Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL), along 8 of his colleagues - Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Senator Edward Markey (D-MA), Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Senator Jack Reed (D-RI), Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI), Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), and Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) - introduced S. 2517 which would amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to provide tax rate parity among all tobacco products. S.2517, in its current form would amend all rates of taxation on tobacco products, including increasing the current rate on premium cigars from 52.75 percent to $49.56 per pound. Senator Durbin's arbitrary and regressive tax increase will only harm local small businesses and consumers throughout the country and must be stopped.

Take action now!  Send Senator Durbin a message in opposition to S. 2517.
