The Virginia Senate passed legislation today to ban smoking in restaurants and most other indoor public places. The vote was 23-to-16.
Senator Brandon Bell's bill now goes to the House of Delegates, where similar legislation already has been rejected in committee. The House passed a bill last week that would merely require restaurants that allow smoking to post a sign at the entrance saying so.
