Ban smoking in bowling alleys, unanimous committee says

The House State Affairs Committee has voted unanimously in favor of legislation to end the exemption for bowling alleys from Idaho’s ban on smoking in most public places, reports S-R reporter Parker Howell. About 20 bowlers wearing bright-green stickers saying “Bowlers for Clean Air” crowded into the already full meeting room. Lawmakers also heard testimony from a young girl who asked, “You don’t want to kill a kid, do you?” Even Rep. Eric Anderson, R-Priest Lake, a smoker, was convinced.
