Minnesota Senate to consider e-cigarette bill

ST. PAUL - The full Senate is due to consider a bill that regulates electronic cigarettes the same as tobacco cigarettes.

The House, meanwhile, is moving a measure that restricts e-cigarette use by youths, but does not outlaw them in all public places like the Senate bill would do.

“There is a lot that we don’t know about e-cigarettes, including the secondhand health effects of their vapor,” said Sen. Kathy Sheran, D-Mankato.
