HARRISBURG — State Sen. Stewart Greenleaf believes time and science are on his side.

Despite another setback Monday night, Greenleaf, R-12, remains optimistic that state lawmakers will send a smoking ban bill to Gov. Ed Rendell's desk.

But Rendell will have to wait until at least September to sign a smoking ban, which he had hoped lawmakers would pass before starting their summer recess.
