Smoking Ban Proposal Stalled In County Legislative Body

SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) - Somerset officials again discussed a proposed smoking ban, but took no action.

The county fiscal court met Wednesday and an anti-smoking coalition presented a petition signed by 36 Pulaski County doctors, urging the court to pass an anti-smoking ordinance.

Al Perkins of the Pulaski County Smoke Free Coalition told member he wanted them to see he wasn't the only advocate for smoke-free public places.

Measure opponent Willie Ramsey said he doesn't want the ordinance because it isn't biblical and because it abridges the property rights of business owners.
