FRANKFORT, Ky. (WYMT) - A bill is headed to the full house for a vote. If passed, it would add a new tax on vaping products.

The Lexington Herald reports the excise tax could raise nearly $50 million during the next two years.

House Bill 32 would also increase taxes on tobacco products.

Health officials are hoping a tax hike will discourage teens from buying those products. They also expect the tax to boot state revenue.
