Bill to Ban Casino Smoking Killed


The bill to ban casino smoking died today.

The measure was tossed on its head when the Senate voted 18-17 to amend the measure, requiring casinos to go smoke free when cigar bars and the smoking lounge at Denver International Airport join the crowd of workplaces where smoking is banned.


Sen. Bob Hagedorn, D-Aurora, won his bid to alter the face of the bill, arguing the new statewide smoking ban should extend to every workplace and should not be allowed to carve out “winners or losers.”

Sounds like someone got greedy.
