North Dakotans who visit bars will still be able to light up a cigarette if they wish.
The North Dakota House defeated a proposal to ban smoking in bars and motels. Representatives voted 59-33 to reject the legislation.
Smoking is already prohibited in restaurants, office buildings and most public workplaces. Anti-smoking advocates asked the Legislature to extend the restrictions to bars and motels.
