INDIANA (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - A statewide smoking ban may not be dead for the year, despite a nearly-unanimous vote against it last week in a Senate committee.
The Democratic representative from Gary says he's eying a couple of bills into which the smoking ban could be amended in the final days of the session.
This, as there's still the stumbling block of exempting taverns and bars.
Representative Charlie Brown says he's looking for a way to ease bar owners' concerns that a less-controversial exemption for private clubs would steer their clientele out of their taverns and into the clubs.
15 of the 39-states with statewide smoking bans exempt bars.
