Iowa Independent: Smoking ban, campaign finance make list of bills released to public

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

A ban on smoking in casinos, an expansion electronic campaign finance
filings and subpoena power for the Iowa Civil Rights Commission are
among prefiled bills approved by their sponsors for release to the
public. Rep. Mark Smith, D-Marshalltown, is proposing a bill that
would expand the statewide smoking ban passed last session and end the
law's exemption for casinos. Supporters of the ban have long wondered
about the fairness of the casino exemption, but legislative leaders
have repeatedly said there will be no tinkering with the Smokefree Air
Act in 2009.
