City smoking ban could extend to bars, private clubs

SITKA, ALASKA Smoking in bars and private clubs could become against the law in Sitka under a measure advanced by the Assembly on Tuesday (3-23). The city already has an ordinance against smoking in public places, but bars and private clubs have so far been exempt. Eighteen people testified about broadening the smoking ban, and debate on the subject took up about an hour and a half.
