Culver to sign smoking ban
Publication Date: 2008-04-15
Governor Culver is expected to sign into law today a bill banning smoking in most indoor public places.
The only exceptions are casinos and the Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown.
The ban, which begins July 1st, means thousands of bars and restaurants will
become smoke-free -- and that has some owners already looking for loopholes.
State officials say, however, that Iowa's measure is written so tightly that loopholes will be hard to find.
