For each new electronic cigarette manufactured for sale in  CA  after April 1, 2020, would require the manufacturer to submit the written physical description and photograph of the electronic cigarette to the department within 30 days of making the electronic cigarette available for sale. Would require the state  to post the description and photograph of each electronic cigarette on its internet website, and to conduct a public outreach campaign to notify school districts, charter schools, and parent organizations of that posting. Would authorize a fee on manufacturers of electronic cigarettes sold in the state for each electronic cigarette manufactured, in an amount to cover the reasonable costs to the department to comply with the requirements of the bill. Would take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
