The Board of Commissioners for Multnomah County has voted to restrict the sale of e-cigarettes to minors, and prohibit the use of e-cigarettes in business places where traditional smoking is already banned.
The ordinance will not exempt vape shops from the smoking ban, a stipulation that several people testifying at City Hall claimed to be unfair due to the need for consumers to try out products within vape shops.
The ordinance will go into effect in thirty days, on April 5th.        
KBOO’s Ethan Martin spoke earlier today with Gregory Conley from the American Vaping Association.

A ruling this morning by the Federal Communication Commission to protect net neutrality has been praised as a victory by internet activists.
But although the debate about how best to protect net neutrality may have concluded this morning with the FCC’s new rules to govern the internet, some activists say that the battle may have only just begun.
The House Subcommittee on Commerce and Technology, which is chaired by Oregon Republican Greg Walden, met Wednesday.
At the meeting, Walden conveyed his fears that the designation of the internet as a utility will inspire a wave of litigation challenging that classification . 4:10 minutes (1.9 MB)

On Tuesday, February 24, the Washington County Board of Commissioners votes unanimously to proceed with a plan to close the last two public health clinics in the county and move those services to non-governmental providers. Health and Human Services director Marni Kuyl says the goal of the plan is to expand primary care to uninsured, low-income patients. The plan has proven controversial however, both in content and process, with many members of the medical community as well as advocates for farm laborers and immigrants fighting against the closures. KBOO reported on the opposition to the plan back in September.
