Oklahoma City, Okla. - KRMG has learned Governor Mary Fallin signed an order on Monday to ban the use of electronic cigarettes on state property.
Fallin says the popularity of E-cigarettes is a "concern" because they are unregulated products.
Plus, the governor says the ban will help with enforcing regular tobacco laws on State property.
"Many electronic cigarettes look like traditional cigarettes and emit a vapor that looks like smoke," Fallin says. "This creates confusion for employees and visitors and presents enforcement challenges for state agencies."
Smoking is already banned on state property and the E-cigarette ban will begin January 1.
