What happened at the 2011 Legislature
What happened at the 2011 Legislature

AIR DATE: June 8, 2011

The 2011 Legislature is slated to wrap up by 1 a.m. Tuesday. The budget deal was finally settled in the last week and lawmakers have spent much of the weekend ploughing through a pile of bills on everything from texting while driving to industrial safety. Our political experts will tell us how they see the 2011 Legislature and what it means for the future of Nevada.

    I am outraged that the smoking bill was changed. Smoking is a pox on society. While other places in the country and the world are moving towards more restrictions, Nevada is going in the opposite direction! How much more proof do we need that this is bad public policy?

    It is bad policy but not because it removes a smoking restriction. If smoking needs to be illegal then make it illegal across the board. Half measures like the law that has been in effect and even this silly change only abuse the right of an individual to choose and hurt the economy. As it is non-smokers are given more choice than smokers. Non-smokers aren't better or greater people simply by virtue of not smoking. I, btw, am a non-smoker.
