(INDIANA STATEHOUSE) - The Indiana house has passed a statewide smoking ban.

The 68-31 vote marks the fifth time the house was approved a ban.

This time, senate leaders have promised for the first time to give it a hearing.

Co-author Representative Eric Turner says he's optimistic the legislature will approve a ban in some form.

He'll urge senators to delete some of the exemptions attached by the house for casinos, bars, smoke shops, veterans' halls and nursing homes.
