Snyder Considering E-Cigarette Bill

E-Cigarette Bill Could Face Veto

Some state officials say the measure should have lumped e-cigarettes with traditional tobacco products.
LANSING - Gov. Rick Snyder is signaling that he may veto legislation to prevent minors from buying electronic cigarettes because he does not think it would go far enough and regulate the vaporizers like traditional tobacco products. "I've had issues with that bill," he said last week, adding that it will get "special attention" and extra review.
