Though polls have shown overwhelming public support for Kansas' statewide public smoking ban, could the state repeal it? State Rep. Brenda Landwehr, R-Wichita, current chairwoman of the House Health and Human Services Committee, wants to try. "I'd like to see us revisit the smoking ban," Landwehr told the Kansas Health Institute News Service. "From what I'm hearing from bar owners, there ought to be a compromise." Gov.-elect Sam Brownback also has said that he opposes the ban, as do many of the newly elected GOP state lawmakers.
