Vt. lawmakers weigh further tobacco crackdown

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont House is taking up a bill that would tighten already existing restrictions on where tobacco can be used.

One change would prohibit smoking within 25 feet of state buildings. That would end the practice of some Statehouse smokers of taking their habit to a small area just outside a rear door.

Another big change would ban hotels and motels from having some smoking and some non-smoking rooms. They would all be non-smoking.

An amendment was to be offered prohibiting smoking in cars with small children.
