 ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) _ State lawmakers are looking at whether to include electronic cigarettes in the state's indoor public smoking ban.

 The Senate Health Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing on the matter Monday.

 The panel will consider whether the existing ban on public indoor smoking should be applied to e-cigarettes and review current regulations on liquid nicotine, which is used in the devices.

  The committee is expected to take testimony from supporters and opponents of increased regulations.
