Under the state constitution, the Legislature had to approve the petitions, circulated last fall, by March 18 or they would be scheduled for the public vote.
The petition that receives the most votes, as long as it is a majority, will become state law that cannot be changed for at least three years.
Legislators still can place a third smoking petition on the election ballot, however.
