The Statehouse discussed a bill that would put a smoking ban at state owned
casinos on Thursday. Currently the law allows for smoking on the casinos' gaming
floors. However smoking is banned in all other businesses.
Health officials voiced their concerns regarding secondhand smoke and how it can
affect people. Another concern is the unfairness of the current law. As of now,
private businesses must ban smoking. However the same law does not apply to the
state ran casinos.
Supporters for casino smoking state that gamblers enjoy smoking while they play.
They believe if the players were not allowed to smoke in the casinos, they would
play at casinos in Oklahoma instead.
The bill was not voted on and is still being discussed.
