Battleground Iowa: More smoking ban controversy

Excerpted from this post at Battleground Iowa

It appears that more drama related to the smoking ban is brewing. An
administrative rules committee was supposed to vote this week on the
approval of certain administrative rules that would more clearly
define the smoking ban and provide more details about its
implementation. Certain people are upset about how the proposed rules
define bars versus restaurants. This is important because, under the
law, bars can allow smoking on outdoor patios, but restaurants can't.
Under the proposed rules, if you serve any type of food more
complicated than a frozen pizza, you are considered a restaurant, and
therefore can't allow smoking on outdoor patios.
