Bill Would Loosen Colorado Smoking Ban

Andrew Nagy
Posted: January 27, 2009

A bipartisan bill, expected to be introduced shortly in the Colorado state legislature, would ease the state's Clean Indoor Air Act for cigar smokers by allowing the creation of new cigar bars.

The bill, sponsored by Rep. Don Marostica, R-Loveland, and Rep. Edward Casso, D-Commerce City, would allow new and existing bars, restaurants, racetracks and parts of casinos to apply for a permit to allow smoking if their establishments have an on-site humidor and derive at least 5 percent of their sales revenue from tobacco purchases or $50,000 from such sales.

J. Glynn Loope, executive director of the Cigar Rights of America, said he "intends to vigorously support the planned legislation."
