Baltimore City Council's vaping-ban bill set for second public hearing on Nov. 5

Anyone interested in the bill to ban the use of electronic cigarettes, otherwise known as "vaping," wherever smoking is already prohibited, take note: A second hearing on the bill, continuing the one held on Oct. 7, is scheduled for Nov. 5 at 1 p.m. in the council chambers on the fourth floor of Baltimore City Hall. The proposal is before the council's Judiciary and Legislative Investigations Committee, chaired by the bill's main sponsor, James Kraft (D-1st District), who suggested at the last hearing that amendments would be in the works. One possibility: paring back its scope so that vaping would be banned only at licensed day care facilities, schools and school buses, and in elevators.
