BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Traveling with a child in the car? Louisiana lawmakers say you shouldn’t be vaping then.
The House and Senate have given final passage to a bill that would ban the use of vaping devices in any vehicle with a child present.
Louisiana law already prohibits drivers and passengers from smoking cigarettes, pipes or cigars if a child’s in the vehicle.
The bill by Gretna Rep. Joe Marino adds vaping to that list.
The House voted 80-19 for the measure.
A 30-0 vote Friday in the Senate moved the bill to Gov. John Bel Edwards, who hasn’t objected to the bill.
