Well, here we go:
Smoking in passenger vehicles with children under age 13 would be against state law under legislation endorsed by an Indiana House Committee on Tuesday.
The House Judiciary Committee approved the bill 8-1 and sent it to the full, Democrat-controlled House, where its author, Democratic Rep. Charlie Brown of Gary, predicted it would pass. He said he was not sure how it would fare in the Republican-ruled Senate.
Brown said he understood that some people "would view the legislation as government intrusion." Gee, do you think? If the purpose is "to protect the children," what's the difference between your house and your car? Brown is also the guy who wants at least a $1 a pack increase in the cigarette tax. Think he's a man on a mission?
