Help Defend the Premium Cigar Industry

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is threatening the premium cigar industry, thousands of small businesses, employees, and enthusiasts. We need you to contact Congress to save premium cigars. We need Congress to support the Cole-Bishop language in the FY 2019 House Agricultural Appropriations Bill (H.R. 5961), which would exempt premium cigars from these burdensome regulations.

Take a moment to send this pre-written email to Congress urging them to support premium cigars. Make sure that you edit and personalize the message mentioning your connection to premium cigars. Personal stories matter. How many people does your cigar shop employ? When did you enjoy your first premium cigar with a friend or family member?

If you have any questions about the Cole-Bishop language or other federal issues effecting premium cigars, please contact Daniel Trope, IPCPR Senior Director of Federal Government Affairs at
