Argument For


Argument Against


    The referred law broadens the State's ban on smoking to apply to all restaurants, bars, package liquor stores, Deadwood casinos and video lottery establishments. It requires owners, managers, and operators of places where smoking is prohibited to inform violators of the smoking ban. The ban does not apply to tobacco shops, hotel rooms designated as smoking rooms, and existing cigar bars.

    A vote "Yes" is for broadening the State's ban on smoking.

    A vote "No" is against the referred law.
