(STATEHOUSE) - A Senate Committee will vote next week on a statewide smoking ban and whether to modify a list of exemptions currently in the bill.
In January, the House passed a bill exempting bars, casinos, nursing homes and tobacco shops.
Alice Curry of Columbus is a lifelong nonsmoker who's been fighting stage four lung cancer for a year-and-a-half.
She urged senators to make the ban comprehensive for the sake of Hoosiers' health.
But bar owners argue they'll lose business if they have to go smoke-free, especially if they have to compete with casinos or clubs that don't.
