There's a new effort in New Jersey to ban smoking in casinos

New Jersey lawmakers plan to advance legislation that would end a carveout to the state’s indoor smoking ban within gambling facilities. New Jersey banned indoor smoking in 2006 but allowed the practice to continue in casinos and their simulcasting facilities, but casino workers have urged lawmakers for years to eliminate the exemption. Democratic legislative leaders have said the bill would be considered in the lame-duck session before the next legislative session starts in January, but it could see amendments before reaching the floor.
