Export-related non-tariff measure, nes

On May 5, 2017 President Trump signed into law a bill (H.R.244), commonly known as a “continuing resolution,” that provides appropriations for the remaining months of Fiscal Year 2017 (which ends September 30, 2017). Sections 509 and 7010 each provide that,

None of the funds made available by this Act shall be available to promote the sale or export of tobacco or tobacco products, or to seek the reduction or removal by any foreign country of restrictions on the marketing of tobacco or tobacco products, except for restrictions which are not applied equally to all tobacco or tobacco products of the same type.
