SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – There was a push to back a bill that will regulate the use and sale of e-cigarettes or vaping devices on Capitol Hill Wednesday.
Representative Paul Ray and a group called Students Against Electronic Vaping held a rally in support of House Bill 252.
If the bill passes into law, it will require nicotine disclaimers to be placed on e-cigs and vaping cartridges.
“We try to do stings, but if you go into one of those shops and a youth puts a dollar on the counter, that’s telling the clerk that they’re not with the sting. And they can go ahead and buy their stuff. That’s what we’re hearing from the kids today and that’s how they get some of their things,” said Rep. Ray (R-Clearfield).
Rep. Ray says the added tax revenue would be used for enforcement and special programs for youth.
