Senator Sue Rezin and many others vote down anti-smoking proposal

Posted by wlpo on May 4, 2015

Do you light up with kids in your car? A proposal to make it illegal to smoke in your car with children inside went up in flames in Springfield.

32 of 43 state senators including Republican Sue Rezin voted against the proposed bill. It would’ve made it illegal for you to smoke in your vehicle if there was someone under 18 riding with you. The fine for being caught would’ve been up to $100.

Supporters argued for the idea based on second-hand smoke dangers.
