A bill making its way through the state legislature would enact broad restrictions on indoor smoking across North Carolina. It would ban smoking in restaurants, offices and public buildings. And yes, maybe even inside the Winston-Salem headquarters of the nation's second-largest tobacco company, Reynolds American Inc.
Rep. Hugh Holliman, D-Davidson, is the bill's chief sponsor, and he said that it is aimed at limiting the effects of secondhand smoke.
