Health 4-20-07

A revised bill, House Bill 259, to restrict smoking in North Carolina has again cleared the Judiciary I Committee, this time without the proposed ban on smoking at businesses that some lawmakers opposed. The latest version of the bill would prohibit smoking in restaurants and lodging facilities statewide, and allow local governments to impose stricter regulations for other businesses. Existing law doesn’t allow local governments to enact anti-smoking rules more restrictive than state regulations.
