Senator Vivian Davis Figures from Mobile is one step closer to getting the statewide smoking ban she's always wanted, even if it’s a watered down version.

A Senate Committee approved a bill to ban smoking in restaurants throughout Alabama Wednesday...

Senator Figures, who developed asthma due to second hand smoke, hopes this is finally her year.

"I've been working on this the past 12 years. The most often complaint I hear is that of smoking in restaurants. I decided to tackle the restaurants first."
