Governor Signs Ban on Much Indoor Smoking

April 08, 2006|From Times Wire Reports

Gov. Mike Huckabee signed into law a ban on smoking in most indoor public places.

Violators can be fined up to $500.

"There's probably some crying towels being passed out in the tobacco industry today," joked the Republican governor, a nonsmoker.

The law includes exemptions for nursing homes, small hotels, tobacco shops, and some small or home-based businesses.
