From the DSM Register:

The minority leaders in the House and Senate -- both Sioux Cityans -- said they have concerns about the statewide ban.

House Minority Leader Christopher Rants and Senate Minority Leader Ron Wieck both said they think individual business owners should decide. Rants said the casino exception will make customers flock from bars to casinos.

"With the bill ... makes a real clear point that if Iowans want to go out and have a drink and a smoke, you can't go to your neighborhood bar anymore," he said.


To all who voted for the democrats in this state... did you actually think they were concerned about your health? This is about money, pure and simple. We are going to see a lot of bars and restaurants laying off workers due to decreased sales. But thats better than the poor waiters breathing in second hand smoke, right. This country and this state in particular is full of complete wussies.

Luke 9686 I see what you mean by 'where this is going' we are waaay to litigious and I think the decision to go smoke free should be up to the business owner. There is a bowling alley in DM going smoke free....you don't need a law to do it. Btw, I don't smoke but it also doesn't bother me if someone else does.

I would imagine so, but I cannot answer there. I know it would be inconvenient but that would be so much for the better. People do not think when they drive with their phones.

This is off topic though, so I've gotta stop here.

Talking Logic

Our nice state raised cigarettes to almost $5.00 a pack. You know the tax to help these poor smokers. Missouri and the Indian Casino's sell for far less. Guess where Iowans but cigarettes BY THE CARTON? It sure isn't Iowa. Maybe we can lite up where we buy OUR CIGARETTES!!!!

So are you saying fireworks won't be the only reason go to MO anymore?

Wow no second hand smoking, no fireworks, no driving w/o a seatbelt, no talking on the cell phone while driving. This state is so safe. I'm so happy to live in Iowa.

I think us Iowans deserve an award. Biggest amount of wimps per grown adult.
