St. Louis County's "Indoor Clean Air Code" - also referred to as a smoking ban -has been in effect since Jan. 1. But in contains exemptions for some bars, banquet halls, and casinos.
The American Cancer Society opposed the measure because of those exemptions. And shortly after it took effect, Charlie Dooley called the 110 exemptions that had been handed out "unacceptable." But there's been no movement yet on tightening the language in the ban, approved by voters last November.
The ACS is hoping that a poll it commissioned and released today moves the needle a bit on that effort.
