A State Senate health committee hearing is planned for today to discuss whether the state’s ban on indoor smoking should apply to electronic cigarettes.

The panel will also review current regulations on liquid nicotine, which is used in the devices.

Last year, the City Council approved legislation that includes e-cigarettes in the Smoke-Free Air Act.

The ban went into effect in the city last month.
