ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – State lawmakers are looking at whether to include electronic cigarettes in the state’s indoor public smoking ban.

The Senate Health Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing on the matter Monday.

The panel will consider whether the existing ban on public indoor smoking should be applied to e-cigarettes and review current regulations on liquid nicotine, which is used in the devices.

The committee is expected to take testimony from supporters and opponents of increased regulations. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
