Ok, someone explain the need for this legislation to me. Representative Sean Matthews, a good progressive legislator, has introduced HB417, which would prohibit a tax rate greater than 50 cents per cigar upon the sale and use of premium cigars. Does Sean Matthews enjoy a good cigar on occasion? Is there some cigar crisis going on? Or perhaps our legislators are finally souring on Sin Taxes as a source of revenue.
