State Senate Bans Web and Mail Cigarette Sales

Sponsored by:

A bill to ban Internet and mail order cigarette retailers that skirt tax laws has passed the Senate with no debate. If it´s successful, it would make it more difficult for smokers to dodge state taxes.

State lawmakers hope to tap into the estimated $54 million in lost tobacco tax revenues every year.
