Seneca Nation says cigarette mailing ban threatens business

By Carolyn Thomposon
Buffalo, New York (AP)

A vote by Congress to keep cigarettes out of the mail was a “sucker punch” to treaty rights, the president of the New York tribe that dominates the now-threatened mail-order market said during March.

The House passed the Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking – or PACT – Act with a 387-25 vote less than a week after the U.S. Senate approved it by unanimous consent. It now goes to President Barack Obama for his signature.
