Bill would amend Iowa's smoking ban


CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- A bill introduced to the Iowa House Moday would change two of the most controversial parts of Iowa's statewide smoking ban.

House file 144 would extend the smoking ban to include casino gaming floors, now exempt under the current law.

The bill would also allow smoking in outdoor seating areas of restaurants, where it's currently banned.

There's also two other bills that would make those changes individually.

Ealier, House Speaker Pat Murphy (D-Dubuque) predicted lawmakers would not pass any changes to the smoking ban this session.
