Senator Marco Rubio and Others Reintroduce Premium Cigar Exemption Bill


Drew Newman, a fourth-generation cigar maker at J.C. Newman Cigar Co., added: “From Tampa’s Ybor City to Miami’s Little Havana, handcrafted cigars have been an important part of Florida’s cultural heritage for more than 150 years. Today, Florida’s historic premium cigar industry supports thousands of jobs, from farmers to cigar rollers to retailers. We are tremendously grateful to Sen. Rubio for his continued leadership and advocacy in support of small, family businesses in Florida.”
