Smoke over Michigan Again?

Not since 2010 have Michigan smokers been able to light up whilst seated in outdoor areas. But that may soon change.

A new bill being mulled over by lawmakers would allow restaurants to choose whether to allow smoking “in areas that are less than 50 percent enclosed.”

It means tobacco enthusiasts could be enjoying a fine smoke on patios, and even inside, provided the ‘enclosure’ measure is met.

The bill — which has seen strong bipartisan support — is being spearheaded by a non-smoker, who says his constituents have complained about “over-regulation.”
