PA Smoking Ban Becoming Reality

The Pennsylvania State Senate has approved a bill to ban smoking in public spaces across Pennsylvania. The bill will not weaken Philadelphia’s ban and it is expected that Governor Rendell will sign the bill into law.

There are also exceptions for “bars that have 20 percent or less in annual sales of food, as well as cigar bars, tobacco shops and private clubs whose officers agree to it.”
