Nebraska Tobacco Bond Requirement

In Nebraska, LB 397 revises the bond requirement for nonparticipating tobacco manufacturers who do not participate in the Master Settlement Agreement to require a bond or a cash deposit for $100,000 or an amount based on the manufacturer’s escrow deposits, whichever amount is greater.

Under prior law, the bond had to be for $25,000 if the manufacturer has been listed on the state’s directory of nonparticipating manufacturers or $50,000 if the manufacturer has not been on the directory for at least three years. If the manufacturer failed to make the required escrow deposits, it had to post a bond for $50,000 or an amount based on the escrow deposits, whichever is greater.
