The Cook County Board of Commissioners approved two major pieces of legislation during its meeting Thursday — a ban on the retail sale, distribution and display of flavored liquid nicotine products and an ordinance extending discrimination protections related to reproductive health and gender-affirming care decisions.
Both measures passed via unanimous voice votes with little discussion and no questions, though the flavored nicotine ban was the subject of much commissioner deliberation and some hesitancy before it was unanimously approved during a Wednesday Legislation and Intergovernmental Relations Committee meeting.
