Senate OKs bill to regulate e-cigarettes just like tobacco products

A bill to limit the sale of electronic cigarettes in the same way as sales of tobacco products passed the state Senate on Thursday, March 6. Senate Bill 109, sponsored by Sen. Paul Hornback, R-Shelbyville,
would prohibit the sale of e-cigarettes and vaporized nicotine to minors. The vote was 36-2.
The bill now goes to the House. House Bill 309, which would regulate e-cigarettes as tobacco products, was approved by a House committee last month but has been awaiting action on the floor for several weeks.
