Puerto Rico may butt out

Smokers headed for Puerto Rico, be alerted.

The commonwealth's Senate has passed a measure that would create an island-wide ban on smoking in restaurants, bars, casinos and other public workplaces.

The legislation now goes to the commonwealth's House of Representatives, where it is expected to be approved. The House previously had signed off on a similar version of the Senate bill.

Gov. Anibal Acevedo Vila is expected to sign the bill into law as soon as it reaches his desk.
