Cawley Says Information Insufficient on E-Cigarettes

Yakima Mayor Micah Cawley says he was not convinced electronic cigarettes needed to be nixed from the same areas where cigarettes are not allowed in public.

The reason why Cawley says he voted against a proposal to regulate e-cigarettes at Tuesday’s council meeting was what he did not know.

When you don’t have information that is backed up by some sort of substantial organization that has some authority on this, then there’s still a question mark.

Cawley was on the side of the majority of the 4-3 vote that defeated the measure.

Council woman Maureen Adkison says the city was not trying to impose an all-out ban. She says the city just wanted e-cigarettes regulated in the same areas regular cigarettes are banned in public.

Just follow the rules that smokers have to follow. That’s all we were asking.
