BATH, N.Y. - Steuben County Legislators turned down a second effort to ban smoking on county-owned or leased property. That's according to our newspaper partner, The Leader. The Steuben County Legislature's Human Service, Health and Education Committee proposed the ban. One county legislator who supported the ban said it would be self-policed and was meant to stop people from using tobacco products. However other county lawmakers said the proposed $1,000 fine is excessive, and the the restriction is unenforceable. The proposal came after people entering the county buildings complained about the smoke from people smoking outside them.WETM News
