A retired Indiana senator who voted in favor of a contentious vaping bill while in office has been named the executive director of the Vapor Association of Indiana.

In 2015, Senator Brent Steele voted in support of a bill that permitted a number of companies in Indiana to manufacture and sell e-liquid products.

In his new role as executive director of the Vapor Association of Indiana, a non-profit group that promotes the ethical and responsible manufacturing and distribution of e-liquid, the former lawmaker will represent the few companies licensed to manufacture e-liquid under Indiana’s new state law.

Steele is expected to officially assume his new position with the group on Jan. 1, 2017.
