S. 3174 – the Reversing the Youth Tobacco Epidemic Act of 2020 was recently introduced by Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and would impose a new set of regulations onto small business owners, manufacturers and consumers This legislation directly inflicts economic harm on the traditional family-owned small businesses of the premium cigar industry.
S. 3174 would increase taxes on premium cigars, initiate a ban on charitable sponsorships, prohibit the sale of promotional products, and expand other marketing and advertising restrictions. Simply put, S. 3174 treats premium cigars in a one-size-fits-all manner, like any mass-produced cigarette or vaping product.
Tell Congress to protect the traditional family-owned small businesses of the premium cigar industry and oppose this bill.
