ND House waters down new statewide smoking ban

BISMARCK, N.D. (GPN) – Some changes are in the works for North Dakota’s new workplace smoking ban.

The North Dakota House has approved eliminating a requirement that no-smoking signs be put inside work vehicles.

The bill also removes the new law’s mandate to remove factory-installed ashtrays from cars and trucks that are used on the job.

And it says the law should no longer force businesses to post no-smoking signs by garage doors and loading dock bays. Instead, no-smoking notices must be posted only by building entrances that open from the side.
