HOUSE OF DELEGATES REJECTS GOVERNOR KAINE'S AMENDMENTS TO BAN SMOKING IN RESTAURANTS AND PRIVATE CLUBS!
Bill Number: HB 2422
Chief Patron: Del. Griffith
On Wednesday April 4th, the House of Delegates voted 59-40 to reject Governor Kaine's amendments to ban smoking in all Virginia restaurants through HB 2422. The bill, originally sponsored by Delegate Morgan Griffith, will now go back to Governor Kaine where he has the option to accept it or reject it. The bill basically states that businesses, tobacco shops excluded, have the right to allow smoking in their establishments by placing a "smoking permitted" sign on their door.
