An Indiana House panel has amended legislation targeting the state's problematic vaping law to reintroduce certain regulations.
When it was first sent to the House, the bill by Sen. Randy Head, R-Logansport, effectively gutted the troubled 2016 law, which created a monopoly and sparked an FBI investigation. A federal appeals court also had struck down much of the law.
The House panel's changes address e-liquid labeling, including requiring an identifiable, trackable code and a nicotine warning. The changes also include adding provisions on manufacturer reports, e-liquid flavorings and ingredient lists.
Changes discussed in a hearing Tuesday that would have mandated insurance and banned marketing products with cartoons were not included in the bill that advanced Wednesday.
The legislative panel voted 11-0 on the bill, sending it to the full House.
