O. Kay Henderson at Radio Iowa has the story:
“Only 23 senators voted in favor of the House plan on a statewide smoking ban, while
37 27 rejected it. Key legislators from both the House and Senate predict a smoking ban will clear the legislature this year, one that will ban smoking in bars and restaurants but would allow it in casinos.”
There’s one thing you can rely on at the Statehouse. The casinos always get what they want.
