SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A pair of bills that would have banned the sale of so-called electronic cigarettes to minors won’t advance in this legislative session.

A state House committee decided Wednesday there wasn’t enough time during the short February session to give adequate consideration to the matter.

The two measures would have prohibited sales of e-cigarettes to people younger than 18. One would have also banned use of the devices in government buildings and workplaces, as is now the case with traditional cigarettes.
