U.S. Senate Approves Bill To Curtail Online Sales Of E-Cigarettes

The U.S. Senate recently passed by unanimous consent the “Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act” (S. 1253),” which prohibits online sales of e-cigarettes to minors by applying the same safeguards already in place for regular cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products.

The bipartisan bill was introduced by Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), John Cornyn (R-TX), and Chris Van Hollen (D-MD).

The House has passed similar legislation which means that the bill will likely reach the finish line this year once the House takes up the Senate passed version.
