Alabama Senator Again Plans Smoking Ban Bill

An Alabama Senator plans to again push comprehensive legislation in the upcoming session to allow voters to decide if they want to ban smoking in most public places in the state.

Democratic Senator Vivian Figures of Mobile say she plans to introduce a proposed constitutional amendment that would ban smoking in places of employment, public places and private clubs.

She has tried for several years to pass bills restricting smoking in public places without success. She says she is particularly concerned about the effect second-hand smoke has on children, causing respiratory infections and other health issues. Veteran observers think the measure will again have difficulty passing.
