The article reports on the anger expressed by Las Vegas, Nevada Assemblyman Richard Segerblom over the 11th-hour passage by the Nevada Legislature of a measure to allow smoking at some local trade shows. Reportedly, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority pushed for the change to the Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act, which makes it illegal to smoke in most public places. According to Segerblom, the measure was outrageous and he does not want to subject his constituents to secondhand smoke.
