Indoor Smoking Ban Signed into Law in Kansas


 A bill banning smoking in indoor public spaces in Kansas has been signed into law by Gov. Mark Parkinson, the Associated Press reported March 12.

The measure passed with bipartisan support in the state legislature. It will take effect on July 1.

Smoking will be prohibited in Kansas restaurants, bars, offices, and other public spaces, but not in state-owned and operated casinos. Parkinson objected to the exception but signed the bill anyway, calling for the exemption to be removed later.
