Smoking Banned in Atlantic City Casino

Gamblers would not be allowed to smoke on Atlantic City casino floors or inside fraternal organizations under a measure passed Monday by a New Jersey Senate committee.

Lawmakers voted 7-0 for the measure, which also covers restaurants, bars and offices.

"No one has the right to engage in conduct that harms others," Fred Jacobs, commissioner of Health and Senior Services for the state, said at a hearing before the vote.

Representatives from the Casino Association of New Jersey said a ban would drive away gamblers and harm the state's economy.
