State Lawmakers Considering New Smoking Laws and Sugary Drink Tax

Illinois lawmakers have heard testimony about a proposal to make it illegal to smoke in a car when a minor is in the vehicle.


Supporters say it’s a safety measure no different than requiring seat belts or prohibiting texting behind the wheel. Opponents say the measure is too intrusive.


No vote was taken on the bill.


Meanwhile, another pending measure would impose a tax on sugary soft drinks.


The penny-per-ounce surcharge is intended to fund health education programs.
