Alternative Smoking Ban Proposed in Longview

After much discussion and controversy back and forth between pro and anti-smoking groups, Longview City Council will consider an alternative. In December,  city leaders debated zero tolerance smoking ban, which would have made smoking in *all* public buildings illegal. But because of so much turmoil between opposing groups, the council is now working on a new proposal that would create exceptions for hotels and night clubs. The new version should be ready for discussion by opposing groups this week.
