Southgate News Herald: Dingell urges FDA to finalize e-cigarette rule after roadblock averted in funding bill
U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-12th District) is thanking negotiators for preventing a “poison-pill” policy rider from being included in the 2016 government funding bill that would have exempted electronic cigarettes from being regulated by the Food and Drug Administration.
“Consumers deserve to know that the products they buy are safe for use,” Dingell said. “Such assurances currently do not exist for electronic cigarettes, and I am pleased that by stopping this damaging proposal, negotiators have helped pave the way for improvements in consumer safety. Now that this roadblock has been averted, the FDA must move as quickly as possible to finalize the proposed rule and protect public health.”
