Bill to ban nicotine products in Pa. schools advances
State Rep. Gerald Mullery’s bill to expand the types of tobacco- and nicotine-based products banned from Pennsylvania schools was unanimously voted out of the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday. Under House Bill 1189, e-cigarettes, cigars, snuff, chewing tobacco and other nicotine products would be banned from schools. Cigarette smoking is already prohibited on school grounds.
