Governor Blagojevich signed a bill Wednesday which gives Illinois communities the power to set their own smoking rules. Currently only 21 communities throughout the state have this authority.
Even though the law doesn`t go into effect until Jan. 1st, 2006, it`s already sparking a lot of discussion and action.
Members of the Tobacco Free Coalition are already working on ways to see smoking in restaurants and bars stopped indefinitely.
