WASHINGTON — Vaping advocates fear the Trump administration will press forward with tight curbs on e-cigarette flavors, after planned meetings between industry groups and White House officials were scratched.

Several groups opposed to a wide-ranging ban said Tuesday that meetings this week with the Office of Management and Budget had been canceled — a signal the Trump administration was abruptly scrapping consultations and possibly preparing an announcement.

Paul Blair, the director of strategic initiatives at Americans for Tax Reform and a proponent of e-cigarettes, said in a tweet that OMB had canceled a meeting with him about the planned guidance from the Food and Drug Administration.
