Nixon signs legislation exempting Ameristar from smoking ban

Posted: Updated:

(KMOV.com) – Mo. Gov. Jay Nixon signed legislation exempting Ameristar from any future countywide smoking ban.

There is fear that banning smoking at the casino would cause a drop in attendance and cost millions of dollars in tax revenue.

Another state law allows cities with at least 75,000 people to make their own smoking ban laws. This could have endangered smoking on the casino floor.
