Fallin Signs 2 Dozen Bills, Vetoes 2 Others
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Governor Mary Fallin has vetoed two bills and signed more than two dozen others, including one that prohibits the sale of electronic cigarettes or vapor products to minors.
Fallin's office announced the signings Friday afternoon.
The e-cigarette bill places into statute a definition of "vapor product" and restricts their sale, including a ban on sales to those younger than 18.
Other bills she signed deals with taxes, adoptions, school district residency and hazardous waste.
She vetoed a bill to restrict the sale to minors of "compressed gas dusters," such as items used to blow dust off computer keyboards, that people can inhale to get high. She also vetoed a bill that would have allowed noncustodial parents to not pay child support if the custodial parent refuses to honor visitation rights.
