Jacque not giving up vape fight

Local State Senator Andre Jacque says there are more opportunities to help protect the state’s youth from the harmful effects of vaping with e-cigarettes. According to the Wisconsin Health Department, 69 people have developed lung-related issues due to vaping, triggering lawmakers across the country to pass legislation curbing e-cigarette use. Senator Jacque’s bill outlawing vaping in indoor spaces likely will not be taken up for a vote despite close to 90 percent of respondents in a recent DoorCountyDailyNews.com poll being in favor of such legislation.  The DePere Republican says something needs to be done to help protect the public’s health.

Senator Jacque says he is much more confident a related bill forbidding the sale of e-cigarette products to minors will pass through the Wisconsin Legislature.
