Voters Get Final Say On Expanded Smoking Ban

October 26, 2010, 12:03 PM

Voters Get Final Say On Expanded Smoking Ban
SIOUX FALLS, SD - South Dakota voters on Election Day get a final say on a 2009 law that expands the state's indoor smoking ban to bars, video lottery establishments and Deadwood casinos.

Lawmakers voted to extend the state's current ban on smoking in most workplaces and public areas, but a coalition of bars and gambling businesses gathered enough signatures to put the law to a November 2 statewide vote.
 
Opponents of Referred Law 12 say it takes away the personal rights of business owners who choose to cater to customers who smoke.

Supporters say it's a public safety issue, and the measure will protect workers and reduce health care costs stemming from cancer, heart attacks and respiratory disease.

A "Yes" vote would broaden the state's ban on smoking. A "No" vote would prevent the referred law from taking effect.
