Electronic Cigarette Bill Advances To State Senate
The Illinois House approved legislation that'd require stores to keep electronic cigarettes behind the counter.
The measure passed 113-0 on Tuesday and now heads to the Illinois Senate.
The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports the bill requires retailers to keep e-cigarettes and other alternative tobacco products in age-restricted sections, a sealed display case or behind store counters.
The measure is aimed at keeping young people from accessing the products.
The bill is sponsored by Rep. Kathleen Willis, a Democrat from Addison. A Senate version is before the Senate Public Health Committee.
