Vermont Anti-smokers Recruit NY Anti-smokers

Montpelier, VT – Vermont legislators are considering a proposal to end the cabaret exemption in the state's anti-smoking law. The provision allows venues like bars, and bowling alleys that make more than 50% of their revenue from liquor and entertainment sales to permit smoking. VT anti-smoking advocates want the exemption eliminated. They brought an anti-smoking advocate from NY to talk to VT legislators about the NY's experience with the laws that bar smoking in such places. WAMC's Pat Bradley reports.
