The smoking-ban bill -- renamed the Dr. Fay Boozman Clean Air in Restaurants for a Healthier Arkansas Act in honor of the late state health director who championed its passage before his death last month -- would prohibit smoking in eating establishments at which food accounts for 70 percent or more of sales.
At restaurants that have bars, even separate ones, the 70-percent rule would apply to the entire establishment.
