Illinois House votes to lift casino smoking ban

The Illinois House voted Tuesday to lift a smoking ban in all of the state's casinos during a debate that pitted the health of bettors and casino workers against hundreds of millions of dollars in lost revenues.

The proposal, which passed 62-52 and now moves to the state Senate, represents a significant softening of the state's 2008 anti-smoking law that banned tobacco use in virtually all indoor public areas.

"Ladies and gentleman, if we're serious about our budget crisis in Illinois, let's be real. This is not about the smoking issue. This is about the money," said Rep. Dan Burke (D-Chicago), the bill's House sponsor.
