WASHINGTON, D.C. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The U.S. Senate is considering legislation that would prohibit the marketing of electronic cigarettes to children.

The Senate bill, sponsored by Senator Barbara Boxer, could impose penalties of up to $16,000 per day that a company knowingly violates the proposed law. The bill has been referred to the Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation.

E-cigarettes as they are also known, contain varying levels of nicotine.
