ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – The Minnesota House has moved to impose regulations on the sale of electronic cigarettes though it has stopped short of preventing their use in most public places.

A series of limitations on the fast-spreading devices were added to a health policy bill headed toward passage Monday night. The bill would expressly bar sales to minors, outlaw their use on school property, prohibit their sales from mall kiosks and require their nicotine liquid come in child-resistant packaging.

The bill also bars e-cigarette use in state-owned buildings. The House didn’t attempt to classify e-cigarettes as traditional tobacco products and make them subject to the clean indoor air act.

A companion Senate bill does include the indoor air language. Supporters fended off an effort earlier Monday to pare the Senate bill back.
