Kodiak Smoking Ban Fails in Assembly Vote
If you're in Kodiak, you can still smoke 'em if you got 'em.
KODIAK- If you're in Kodiak, you can still smoke 'em if you got 'em.
The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly has killed a wide sweeping ban on smoking.
The assembly Thursday night voted down the proposal. Had the assembly passed it, the measure would have gone to voters on the fall ballot.
The proposal would have prohibited smoking in any business, including outdoor decks, stadiums, even fishing boats as far as three miles offshore.
Some residents complained the measure was an example of government intruding into people's personal lives.
