The North Dakota Senate has approved a pair of bills designed to fine-tune the state’s smoking ban. Voters approved the ban in November. Under the measure business owners would be able to request no smoking signage from tobacco cessation groups at no cost if they don’t want to pay for it themselves. In addition lawmakers defined the front door as the entrance to a shop or business where the signs are required. Senator Jerry Klein says the legislation also tries to put some common sense into signage involving a company vehicle.
Both measures were approved on a 47-to-zero vote. The house has passed similar legislation.
