Attorney General Marty Jackley announced minutes ago that he and Secretary of State Chris Nelson have decided against appealing the decision of Circuit Judge Kathleen Trandahl in the smoking-ban referendum case. The American Cancer Society doesn't plan to appeal either. That clears the way for the ban to be referred to a statewide vote on the November 2010 election ballot.
