Statewide smoking ban passes Kentucky House, now heads to state Senate

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A statewide ban on smoking in Kentucky has passed the House.

The historic vote Friday morning prohibits indoor smoking in most public places -- but there are some exemptions, like research centers and private clubs.

The bill also allows local communities to pass their own anti-smoking ordinances before the law goes into effect.

It now heads to the Senate, where its future is uncertain.
