CRA Announces Victory In Pennsylvania

CRA would like to thank in large part Pennsylvania’s senators and leadership and all the CRA members who took time to contact Governor Rendell and other members of the Commonwealth’s leadership to express your opposition to levying any tax on cigars.

This important victory comes within less than 24 hours after our victory in Springfield, Missouri where a proposed smoking ban was defeated due to the overwhelming response of local business owners and CRA members!
