Specialty Tobacco Council Incorporated


The mission of the Specialty Tobacco Council (“STC”) is to promote the business interests that are common to its members in the eyes of legislators and the general public in the United States. This includes making sure that no legislation is passed that will adversely affect its members as a whole and to provide information about specialty tobacco products to the public, the media and both federal and state legislators. The adverse impact of legislation on clove cigarettes is of great concern at the present time.

The STC’s mission may be expanded or contracted at the option of the members. The STC’s approach is based on the belief that when it comes to lobbying and attempting to help shape legislation and regulations that could be problematical to our members, it is infinitely easier and more effective to do so as a group that represents the industry as a whole.
