Legislative Notebook: Bill would raise 'little cigar' tax

Email

ST. PAUL - Some Minnesota legislators want to raise the tax on "little cigars," saying the products cost less than cigarettes and they can be flavored as a way to attract children.

Sens. Kari Dziedzic, DFL-Minneapolis, and Carla Nelson, R-Rochester, said little cigars basically are the same as cigarettes, but taxed differently under state law. Their bills would change that.
