Cities and counties could choose to ban smoking in restaurants and bars under a bill that took a big step in the Legislature on Wednesday.
The Senate voted to allow local governments to adopt anti-smoking ordinances that are more strict than state law.
Des Moines and 12 other cities have discussed the idea, according to the Iowa League of Cities.
