(STATEHOUSE) - The senate holds its first-ever hearing on a statewide smoking ban today, with advocates hoping to put more teeth in it.

A house vote in January marked the fifth time the chamber has approved a smoking ban, but this is the first time the senate has allowed a hearing on it.

Public Policy Committee Chairman Ron Alting notes getting a ban through the house has almost always required exemptions for bars and casinos, and predicts the same will be true in the senate.
