Over the past few months, your representatives at IPCPR have been collaborating with the Cigar Association of America and the Nebraska Premium Tobacco Association to restore the right of retail tobacconists in Nebraska to allow smoking in their businesses. Today, Legislative Bill 118 was signed by Governor Pete Ricketts. This legislation creates a limited exemption to the Nebraska Clean Indoor Air Act to allow for smoking in cigar shops. This legislation is immediately effective.
Thank you to all IPCPR members who contacted the Legislature regarding this important legislation. Your participation was critical to our success.
