ABSTRACT
The article reports on the indefinite postponement of the smoking ban after the bar and slot operators and their lawyers protested against the Nevada Clean Air Indoor Air Act imposed by the state's Division of Health in 2008. It is inferred that tavern owners argued that they learned of the pending ruling only after reading about the then-upcoming meeting in the Business Press. It is also cited that the protests made the Division of Health wait for the decision of the Nevada Supreme Court on the act's constitutionality.
