Lawmakers split over smoking ban details
A statewide smoking ban could be headed for approval by the Legislature, but it won't get everyone's backing.
"I highly doubt many (Iron) Rangers will be supporting the final bill," House Majority Leader Tony Sertich, DFL-Chisholm, said.
Sertich was referring to his fellow Iron Range lawmakers, who may support a smoking ban that provides exemptions, such as for bars or private clubs.
Bills being considered by the House and Senate don't include those exemptions.
