Smoking bans pass in 3 Mo. towns, fail in 1

O’FALLON, Mo. (AP) — Three more Missouri towns are going smoke-free, but one isn’t.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that three towns gave approval to smoking bans in Tuesday’s election. But a ban in Cape Girardeau was defeated by a narrow margin.

O’Fallon voters approved the measure by a 3-to-1 margin. Springfield adopted a ban, and Webb City voters endorsed a measure in a nonbinding referendum, though the Joplin Globe reports that the mayor expects the city council to enact the ban.
