Smoking ban gains momentum in Kentucky

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The push is on once again to ban public smoking in Kentucky.

Supporters of a statewide smoking ban held a rally in the Capitol Rotunda to promote their latest effort. The bill has support from both Republicans and Democrats -- and they say public support is growing as well, pointing to a recent poll which shows 65-percent of Kentuckians support the ban.

Supporters believe a bill can pass the House but its fate is less certain in the Senate.
