CLAYTON, Mo. -- A smokers’ rights advocate is asking the 135 St. Louis County establishments that hold exemptions to the countywide smoking ban to protest a proposal removing most of those exemptions.

Bill Hannegan sent letters to owners of the establishments, in response to a bill introduced by County Councilman Mike O’Mara. The Florissant Democrat wants to make the smoking ban stricter.

Hannegan, of St. Louis, is director of a group called Keep St. Louis Free.
