Smoking ban opponents file 15,000 signatures
Those opposed to the new smoking ban in Columbus have collected nearly 15-thousand signatures in an effort to put the issue on the ballot.
Five thousand signatures are needed.
Jacob Evans of the “Can The Ban” campaign says he’s confident of a win in November.
A spokesman for Tobacco Free Ohio says 15,000 people is a small portion of the electorate.
