FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Indoor smoking in public places would be illegal everywhere in Kentucky under a law proposed by a state legislator.
For the second time, Rep. Susan Westrom, a Lexington Democrat, is sponsoring a statewide ban that would include fines for individuals and businesses. A similar measure did not pass last year, but Westrom has made changes she said strengthens it.
She said she has about 20 co-sponsors and will work to educate other legislators and the public about the issue.
Westrom announced the measure Thursday at a Capitol rally.
