Governor signs 42 bills including measure against White Collar Crime
SALT LAKE CITY (March 24, 2015) – Gov. Gary R. Herbert signed 42 bills
today, bringing the total number of bills signed from the 2015 General
Legislative Session to 144.
Among those signed were HB 378
, White Collar Crime
Registry and HB 415 ,
Regulation of Electronic Cigarettes. HB 378 authorizes the attorney general
to develop and operate a Utah White Collar Crime Offender registry, which
will be made available to the public.
“Whether a criminal wears a white collar or a blue collar, I am a strong
supporter of protecting the consumer and the public from fraud and
predatory practices,” said Gov. Herbert. “This bill helps us do that and
I’m proud to sign it.”
HB 415 places state restrictions on the selling or distribution of
electronic cigarette products. It allows the Dept. of Health to determine
product quality, nicotine content, and packaging and labeling standards.
“Electronic cigarettes contain nicotine and other harmful, addictive
substances,” said Gov. Herbert. “As marketing and sales of e-cigarettes
increase, taxation and regulations similar to those imposed on traditional
tobacco products should be enforced to protect public health.”
