Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Smoking Ban Bill

The RTD is reporting that a indoor smoking ban proposed by Brandon Bell has passed committee in the Senate. It now goes to the full Senate for a vote. The 5 Senators voting against it in Committee were Houck, Martin, Newman, Ruff and Rerras. Good for those guys.
I have always believed it should be solely up to the owner of a facility at regulating smoking in indoor establishments, not the government.
Hopefully this bill will ultimately fail.
