No-smoking bill passes house by wider margin than expected; now it goes to Senate

-A A +A
By Staff Brunswick Beacon

The N.C. House of Representatives has passed a bill prohibiting smoking in public places. Now, it’s up to the Senate to decide its fate.

The bill that passed includes several amendments to the original bill, but, for the most part, public places would still be smoke-free.

The amendments allow smoking in tobacconist shops and in some food/lodging establishments—but only if they don’t serve anyone younger than 18, don’t have any employees younger than 18 and they agree to post a conspicuous sign outside stating the dangers of secondhand smoke.
