Damn you, State Senate!

In a world record of two days, a committee passed and the smoking ban went up for vote in both the state Senate and House of Representatives. The House passed the ban by an overwhelming majority (163 - 38) but the Senate decided (31 - 19) that because Allegheny County etc, aren't allowed to create a stricter smoking ban independently, that they would derail this bill for yet another undetermined amount of time! Government is not perfect, and it never will be. Isn't it better to have at least a semblance of a smoking ban in place state-wide than delaying a ban at all for years??
