Senecas urge senators to fight cigarette trafficking act


The Seneca Nation of Indians hopes to gain support from Congressional members in its effort to fight the Prevention of All Cigarette Trafficking (PACT) Act. On Jan. 5, nation officials announced the tribe had purchased space on two electronic billboards along the eastbound Interstate 90 in Buffalo. The billboards implore senators Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Kristen Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) to vote against the legislation. Additionally, the billboards cite the impact of the potential law and ask citizens to oppose it as well.
