NJ Lawmakers Push for Smoking Ban in Casinos

A state assemblyman from Atlantic City introduced legislation Wednesday that would extend the state's new indoor smoking ban to casino floors, as three state senators introduced a similar bill in the Senate.

The measure would expand the Smoke-Free Air Act that former Gov. Richard J. Codey signed into law Sunday, making New Jersey the 11th state to impose a smoking ban.

The law bars smoking from restaurants, bars and most indoor public buildings, but exempts gambling areas in Atlantic City casinos, tobacco retailers and cigar bars. It will take effect April 15.
