A Minnesota Senate committee hears testimony on a proposed statewide smoking ban today. The Senate Health and Family Security Committee will review the ban. It would prohibit smoking in all indoor public places.

A House committee already has approved a scaled-back smoking ban covering restaurants around Minnesota. That version would exempt bars and private clubs.
