CLERE: Let’s clear the air
Warning: This column will leave some readers fuming. On Thursday, I voted for a statewide smoking ban.
The bill passed the House of Representatives 70-26 and now goes to the Senate for its consideration. If it passes the Senate and the governor signs it, the bill will become law.
“Ban” is misleading. Perhaps “selective prohibition” would be a better
description of what we passed. In its current form, Indiana’s law would be one of the weakest in the country.
Weak ... and Clere concedes that it does little to protect the workers most in need. But follow the link (the money?) and read the reasons why he voted "yea," anyway.
