How legislators voted on smoking ban

The Kansas House approved a bill banning smoking in restaurants, bars, offices and other public places by a 68-54 vote Thursday.

The measure now goes to Gov. Mark Parkinson because the Senate approved it last year.

The ban will override Wichita's partial smoking ban.

Of the 76 Republicans, 24 voted "yes," 50 voted "no" and two did note vote.

Of the 49 Democrats, 44 voted "yes," four voted "no" and one abstained because he works for a tobacco company. REPUBLICANS VOTING YES
