Iowa Bill Would Remove Casino Exemption from Smoking Ban

A piece of legislation in Iowa is seeking to remove casinos from the state’s indoor clean air laws, meaning that lighting up a cigar over a hand of poker or table game could become illegal.

S.F. 109 was introduced by Sen. Joe Bolkcom, D-Johnson, and would also remove the exemptions currently in place for excursion gambling boats and race tracks.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
