      NY Senate to review e-cigarette rules

      State lawmakers are looking at whether to include electronic cigarettes in the state's indoor public smoking ban.

      The Senate Health Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing on the matter Monday.

      The panel will consider whether the existing ban on public indoor smoking should be applied to e-cigarettes and review current regulations on liquid nicotine, which is used in the devices.

      The committee is expected to take testimony from supporters and opponents of increased regulations.
