Lawmaker: No smoking with kids in the car
JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- A local lawmaker just filed a bill to ban Floridians from smoking in their cars if a kid is inside.
There are plenty of rules of the road. State Rep. Charles McBurney said he just filed brand new legislation trying to ban people from smoking while minors are in the car. He told Action News it's not about the government telling people they can't smoke. "This
quite frankly isn't about Big Brother, but little brother in the back seat in the car seat," said McBurney.
Smokers we spoke to didn't want to talk on camera about their habit. While some agree with the proposal, others said it's not fair.
Right now it is just a proposal in the House. A bill in the Senate has not been filed yet. We're told the legislation will be taken up in March.
