The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports the bill requires retailers to keep e-cigarettes and other alternative tobacco products in age-restricted sections, a sealed display case or behind store counters.

The measure is aimed at keeping young people from accessing the products.

The bill is sponsored by Rep. Kathleen Willis, a Democrat from Addison. A Senate version is before the Senate Public Health Committee.
