OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Washington’s Senate has approved a bill that would require companies selling vapor products in the state to be licensed through the liquor and cannabis board and would implement a number of other regulations on the industry.

Senate Bill 6328 passed the chamber on a 37-6 vote on Monday, and now heads to the House for consideration. The bill defines vapor products to include vaping devices such as electronic cigarettes, and nicotine solutions that go into the devices.

Among other things, the bill would require warning labeling on health effects of vapor products, ban vaping in child care facilities, schools and other places. Though the sale of vapor products to people under 18 is currently illegal, the industry is largely unregulated in the state.
