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.
