Senate OKs Ban On Smoking In Cars With Young Kids

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Maryland Senate has approved a ban on smoking in vehicles if a child under eight is a passenger.

The Senate passed the measure on a 27-20 vote on Wednesday.
    
Drivers also wouldn't be able to allow other passengers to smoke in a vehicle with a child under eight.
    
A person in violation would be subject to a maximum fine of $50.
    
The bill now moves to the House of Delegates.
    
The measure has been introduced in Maryland for several years. Last year, the bill passed the Senate but did not make it out of a House committee.
