Mrs. Kentucky USA Lends Her Support to Statewide Smoking Ban

Advocates for a statewide smoking ban in Kentucky are getting some high profile help.Mrs. Kentucky USA is lending her support to the measure this week. Kathy Polston-Dalton was born with a heart disease that flares up when she’s around secondhand smoke. She says a statewide smoking ban would alleviate problems she and others have with the disease.“I’ve had to avoid a lot of places that might have been uncomfortable for me or bad for my health," she says. "And because of that it’ll be nice not to have to avoid it and be able to move freely and feel like you're healthy while you’re doing it."The bill is expected to get a committee hearing this week.
