DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Regulation of cigarette retail sales. Provides that the cigarette fair trade act prohibits only retailers from selling cigarettes at below cost to the retailer (currently the cigarette fair trade act also prohibits distributors from making wholesale sales at below cost to the distributor). Eliminates a provision requiring a retailer that receives discounts ordinarily allowed on purchases by a distributor to include the distributor's cost in the basic cost to the retailer. Repeals a provision regarding a distributor's cigarette cost.
