There was no vote of which I am aware. There was a county hearing where people were allowed to come and speak for and against. They did and then there was a vote by the 15 council members. The vote was 14-1.

Well, it appears that despite the 14-1 vote, Onorato is going to veto it, since special-interest groups got their claws into it - it appears that casinos are exempt. Good for him - I'm happy he isn't going to let a piece of legislation through that makes some businesses more equal than others. I'm still in favor of your plan, though - making some fraction of liquor licences smoking, and some non-smoking.

Yeah, and good for him. The only problem is, can't they override a veto by a high enough vote? I don't know if its 2/3rds or 3/4ths or what, but I would think that 14-1 would be good enough

I'm not sure what the requirements are in county council, but the report I read said that the legislation was basically dead. That says to me that the veto isn't going to be overridden - or that the reporter doesn't know what he's talking about. :)
