A bill that would expand no-tobacco rules on school grounds won approval Tuesday in the Louisiana Senate.

The vote was 37-1.

The measure, House Bill 218, now returns to the House, which earlier approved a similar version.

If the House goes along with the Senate changes the legisaltion will go to Gov. John Bel Edwards.

The bill expands a state ban on tobacco products from school buildings to school grounds, playgrounds and school vehicles used for extracurricular activities.

It also expands the definition of tobacco products to include e-cigarettes, advanced personal vaporizers and vape pens.

Fines would be set by the schools.

Violators would face fines of up to $25 for a first offense, $100 for a second offense and $250 for a third and subsequent offenses.
