Pennsylvania Senate Rejects House Ban
Posted: July 31, 2007
With the state's two legislative bodies unable to agree upon a bill that would enact a statewide indoor smoking ban, Pennsylvania will continue to allow smoking for the time being.
On July 16, the fourth consecutive day of deliberation, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives agreed upon an amended version of a Senate-initiated statewide smoking ban. When submitted back to the Senate, the bill was promptly rejected by a 36-13 vote.
The House sought to intensify the bill's reach by widening the indoor ban to include every space in a casino as well as all bars regardless of food revenue. Neither bill included an exemption for restaurants.
Spokesman Erik Arneson said in an Associated Press report that the next step would likely be a joint meeting between House and Senate members in the fall to resolve the stalemate.
