A BILL

To amend title 18, United States Code, to include certain territories and possessions of the United States in the definition of State for the purposes of chapter 114, relating to trafficking in contraband cigarettes and smokeless tobacco.

Section 1. Short title[edit]

This Act may be cited as the “Stop Tobacco Smuggling in the Territories Act of 2013”.

Sec. 2. Territories and possessions of the United States included in the definition of State for the purposes of the prohibition against trafficking in contraband cigarettes and smokeless tobacco[edit]

Paragraph (4) of section 2341 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by striking “or the Virgin Islands” and inserting “the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, or Guam”.

This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States federal government (see 17 U.S.C. 105).
