LANSING (WKZO) -- Legislation banning the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors is now before the state Senate.

The House passed the bill last week, calling for a 50-dollar fine for people who sell the items and making minors subject to prosecution as well. Representative Rick Outman of Six Lakes in Montcalm County sponsored the bill, saying he simply wants to keep the product out of the hands of children.

The bill passed with strong bi-partisan support, 94-15.
