Yesterday, a House Committee sent
Delegate Morgan Griffith's bill to the
floor of the House of Delegates.

He offered the bill as an
alternative to Senator Brandon Bell's
bill that would outright ban smoking in
restaurants and most public places.

Griffith believes the sign
requirement will push more restaurants
to become smoke- free.

Health advocates argue the bill
won't protect employees working where
smoking is allowed.
