The FBI is investigating the creation of Indiana’s controversial vaping law to determine whether any foul play was involved.
IndyStar reports that agents appear to be concerned about whether any legislators stood to profit from a law that give only a handful of e-liquid producers control of the Indiana market.
At least two lawmakers and a manufacturer of the liquids were interviewed by the FBI.
“They asked me if I knew of anything anyone might have gotten out of this legislation,” said state Sen. Phil Boots, who said he talked to an agent last month. “I think that’s what they’re looking at — Did someone in the legislature gain from the legislation?”
The law was passed in 2015 and amended this year.
