TxCMA Mission Statement
To use ever viable means available to stand against taxation without representation and unfair anti-smoking laws that impact fellow merchants and purveyors of the cigar trade.
In 2010, the TxCMA hired a consultant to help us educate the members of the legislature and their staff on the truths of the premium tobacco industry. Since then, our industry has enjoyed many successes and made new friends inside the capitol rotunda. Unfortunately, these come with a cost of paying for consultants, making strategic campaign contributions and hosting educational events for legislative staff. Without proceeds to carryout the TxCMA’s mission, the retailer will have zero representation in Austin to prevent the catastrophe from 2009 from occurring again in 2019.
Anti-Smoking groups are zeroing-in on Texas cities in an effort to implement new smoking laws. Have you enlisted the TxCMA to fight for your interests?
