Opponents Aim to Overturn Smoking Ban

Laramie, Wy – This week the Laramie City Council approved a ban on smoking in bars, restaurants and private clubs. Now an opposition group is trying to overturn the ordinance. Joe Hageman is a member of the organization. He says they just started a petition drive to get the issue on the ballot in November. Hageman says he believes it will end up on the ballot and the people will overturn the vote of the council.
To get the issue on a ballot in November the opposition group must get about 1400 signatures from registered voters that live within city limits. They have to do this by September 21st.
