Electronic cigarette bill advances to state Senate


SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- 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.


The bills are HB5868 and SB3268.
