According to an Associated Press article, South Dakota lawmakers are split on a proposed smoking ban in all businesses, including bars, motel rooms and casinos.

The article said 43 percent of the 82 lawmakers that responded to a survey would support a state-wide smoking ban. House and Senate leaders said they believed the measure had a good chance of passing in the legislature that began Jan. 13...

Some lawmakers said they felt within the next two years the ban could pass, and some say it could be this year. The legislature does not need to wait. It's been long enough as it is.
