Texas Smoking Ban Loses Steam
Posted: May 28, 2009
A bill proposed in the Texas Senate that sought to ban smoking in bars, restaurants and almost all public places will not pass, said the bill's author.
The bill Rodney Ellis, D-Houston, proposed for this legislative session, while exempting cigar bars and tobacco shops, would have prohibited smoking in all businesses defined as either a restaurant or bar and also within 15 feet from the entrance to an enclosed area, if it had passed.
However, the senator was unable to muster enough support, and so he announced on May 20 that the bill was dead.
Ellis vowed to bring the proposal back in 2011, according to the Austin-American Statesman newspaper.
