Will The State-Wide Smoking Ban Pass the Senate [POLL]

The smoking ban has been a big topic on the morning show and it is again today. According to at least one report, the smoking ban could face a battle in the Senate. According to the Texas Tribune, at least 2 Republican Senators are against such a ban and one Senator is on the fence.

Senator Robert Duncan isn’t sure if he supports the ban or not. According to the Tribune:

Sen. Robert Duncan, the Lubbock Republican who carried the bill, said he’s “conflicted,” particularly from a “local control” aspect, about a smoking ban and has lingering questions over whether it’s germane to the fiscal matters bill. Still, he cautioned that he’s “not saying I oppose it.”

One Republican did speak out according to the Tribune:

But Sen. Bob Deuell, R-Greenville, and another of the Senate’s conferees, said that even though he’s a physician, he has a constitutional and personal property problem with the measure. “I took an oath to uphold the Constitution” — an oath, he said, that even overrides his Hippocratic Oath.

The big question is, will this get through the Senate. What do you think?
