(CHICAGO) Believe it or not, smokers have won a round in the Illinois Senate.
Lake County Democrat Terry Link proposed to ban smoking on public college campuses, inside and out. But during debate, downstate Republican Chapin Rose had a question.
Rose: Ya go tailgate at a football game, you will not be able to smoke at your car standing next to your cookout griller, is that correct?
Link: That part is correct, but you can sit in your car and smoke all you want.
Rose: That’s kinda crazy!
Link: I gotta tell ya, if their football team doesn’t improve, we won’t have to worry about tailgating pretty soon!
Maybe so, but the anti-smoking bill still fell 5 votes short.
