AC smoking ban may get senate vote

(US).- The chairman of the Senate Health Committee has breathed new life into the effort to ban smoking in all corners of Atlantic City casinos.

S

tate Senator Joseph Vitale scheduled a Monday vote on legislation that would override an Atlantic City Council ordinance that designates smoking areas on one-quarter of casino gaming floors.

Council originally sought a complete ban but settled for the designated smoking areas after the casino industry agreed not to mount a court challenge.

Both Governor Jon S. Corzine and Assembly Speaker Joseph Roberts Jr., appear intent on letting the compromise play out for a while.
