Hawaii E-Cigarette Bill Passes Senate Committee - Another Win For Electronic Cigarettes

Hawaii E-Cigarette Bill Passes Senate Committee
Another Win For Electronic Cigarettes!

After much debate, the Hawaii Senate and Ways Committee voted to delete language that would require a 70% tobacco tax on electronic cigarette devices.

E-cigarette bill, Sb2233, was passed by the Hawaii Senate and Ways Committee on Friday, February 10, after members voted to delete language that would require a 70% tobacco tax on electronic cigarettes. The main portion of the bill, which restricts the sales of e-cigarettes to minors, is still intact, obviously.

Those who were opposed to requiring the 70% tax on electronic cigarettes, which deliver vaporized nicotine to users, noted that e-cigs do not contain any tobacco, do not emit any noxious or hazardous smoke, and could actually help smokers break their smoking habits.

All in all, this was an excellent decision made by the Hawaii Senate and Ways Committee. Cudos to them for actually paying attention to what consumers really want.
