FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- The Kentucky House has passed a bill that would ban the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors.

Supporters say the measure carries the same rules that apply in banning youth access to tobacco products.

The House made some changes to the bill before passing it Thursday.

The measure will return to the Senate, which will decide whether to accept the House's revisions. If the Senate goes along with those changes, the bill would go to Gov. Steve Beshear for his consideration.

E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices resembling traditional cigarettes. They heat a liquid solution, creating vapor that users inhale to get nicotine without the smoke of regular cigarettes.
