Illinois is one step closer to cracking down on e-cigarettes disguised as school supplies.

Lawmakers in the state propose banning e-cig ads that could confuse adults into thinking they are everyday items, like highlighters and erasers.

The Illinois Department of Revenue, Attorney General, and local law enforcement would enforce the legislation, media oulets are reporting.

On Wednesday, Senate Bill 2662 was unanimously approved by the House Executive Committee. The bill is now headed to the House floor for further consideration.
