(INDIANAPOLIS) - A recently retired Indiana lawmaker who voted in favor of a controversial vaping bill has been hired as the executive director of the Vapor Association of Indiana.

The Indianapolis Star reports retired state Sen. Brent Steele of Bedford voted in favor of a vaping bill in 2015 that allowed a handful of companies in Indiana to make and sell e-liquid.

Steele's district included Lawrence and Brown counties, as well as parts of Monroe, Jackson and Bartholomew.

As the association's executive director, Steele will represent the few companies licensed to manufacture electronic smoking device liquid under Indiana's new law.

Critics of the law say they are disappointed in Steele's new position. However, Steele insists that he sees no ethical issues with it.
