Bar owner challenges smoking ban

Posted:

WEST BURLINGTON (KWWL) -- A West Burlington bar owner is fighting to keep his liquor license by challenging the constitutionality of Iowa's Smoke Free Air Act. 

Larry Duncan, owner of Otis Campbell's has filed an application to stay a decision by the Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division that revoked his liquor license back on April 8th.

Duncan argues the smoking ban violates the constitution because it doesn't treat all business the same.  While the law bans smoking in bars and restaurants, it exempts the gambling portions of casinos.
