It's been more than a year since Hawaii outlawed smoking in bars and restaurants.
But this year, some lawmakers plan to introduce a new bill that would make exceptions.
It will allow bar owners to pay a fee of one to three thousand dollars for a license allowing smoking.
The beauty of this bill is that those fees every year will go toward a public awareness campaign to increase organ donations in Hawaii.
