Kansas Debates Statewide Smoking Ban


Topeka, Kan. – For more than a decade, clean air advocates in Kansas have been promoting a ban on smoking in public places, including bars and restaurants. Several bills that would enact a statewide smoking ban have been introduced in the legislature this session. The Kansas House is hearing a new one this Wednesday afternoon. But as Kansas Public Radio's Bryan Thompson reports, the House and Senate versions are quite different.
