West Chester Twp.'s representative in the Ohio Senate said the bill he drafted to amend Ohio's smoking ban is a move to promote discussion over details.

Senate Bill 195 would permit an exemption to Ohio's smoking ban "to allow smoking in cigar bars and in outdoor seating areas of restaurants that are at least 20 feet away from an entrance, exit or window of the restaurant."
