Senate Oks bills on e-cigarettes, and red light cameras

On Wednesday, the Virginia Senate approved three bills regulating e-cigarettes, red light cameras and concussions in youth sports.

Senators passed Senate Bill 96, which prohibits the purchase, possession and use of tobacco products by minors, such as nicotine vapor products and alternative nicotine products. 

 The Senate also endorsed Senate Bill 172 requires non-scholastic youth sports programs that utilize school property to establish policies and procedures for handling concussions. The bill also directs the Board of Education to review and revise the Board’s guidelines on concussions as necessary.

House Bill 1040 allows people who have received traffic tickets issued by a red light camera photo system the right to appeal to the circuit court in a civil proceeding. The bill also reduces $50 to $20 the amount of fine that may be appealed.
