MADISON - U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson is urging President Donald Trump not to move forward with flavor restrictions for vaping products, citing worries about job losses and fewer alternatives for cigarette smokers.  

"I am supportive of regulations that ensure the safety of consumer products, and common-sense efforts that prevent youth access to e-cigarettes," Johnson wrote in a letter to Trump dated Wednesday. "But I am strongly opposed to far-reaching, unchecked government action that stifles innovation and restricts adults’ freedom to choose safer alternatives to smoking."
