New Hampshire Senate Votes to Tax Little Cigars

Granite State lawmakers appear poised to change the legal definition of cigarettes to include little cigars, meaning the tiny smokes would no longer be tax exempt in New Hampshire.

The Senate passed the bill May 15, voting 13-11 to send it back to the House for further consideration. Since the bill was originally drafted in the House, it is expected to pass.
