Electronic Cigarette Bills Will Not Get Vote in Oregon
SALEM, OR - A pair of bills that would have banned the sale of so-called electronic cigarettes to minors won't advance in this legislative session.
A state House committee decided Wednesday there wasn't enough time during the short February session to give adequate consideration to the matter.
The two measures would have prohibited sales of e-cigarettes to people younger than 18. One would have also banned use of the devices in government buildings and workplaces, as is now the case with traditional cigarettes.
