No Vote on Proposed Kentucky Smoking Ban

Another hearing but no vote on a proposal to ban smoking in public places in Kentucky.
Another hearing but no vote on a proposal to ban smoking in public places in Kentucky.

The Senate Health and Welfare Committee heard about a half an hour's worth of testimony on the issue, but it did not vote on the matter.

A House Committe passed a similar bill several weeks ago, but the House leadership is refusing to bring it up for a vote on the floor.

This comes as anti-smoking groups are buying advertising time in Kentucky urging legislative leaders to allow members to vote on the bills.
