A bipartisan group of senators said Wednesday that they believe their bill to raise the age to buy tobacco and e-cigarettes can pass Congress and be signed into law -- but only if they can keep it free of loopholes and fend off efforts to water it down or load it up with controversial provisions. Sen. Brian Schatz, a Hawaii Democrat, said major anti-smoking organizations, like the American Lung Association, are backing their bill for one major simple reason: "It has no loopholes, it has no exceptions, there are no tricks. It is a clean piece of legislation."
