Smoking bans fail in House
- February 8, 2008
Proposals to ban smoking in public places and restaurants died in a House of Delegates subcommittee Thursday.
A subcommittee of the House General Laws Committee tabled the proposed bills, which ranged from banning smoking in most public places to giving localities the option to enact smoking bans.
The Senate recently passed several similar smoking bans. The committees will have to respond to those bills after crossover day, when legislation from each house moves to the other.
