(Carson City, NV)  —  The Nevada Supreme Court will decide later this year whether to overturn a portion of the state’s Clean Indoor Air Act.  Yesterday, justices heard arguments from the company that owns Bilbo’s Bar and Grill. 

The firm’s attorney claims a rule that bans ashtrays and match books from non-smoking areas violates free speech.  The Southern Nevada Health District contends ashtrays and matches encourages smoking.

Voters approved the law in 2006, which bars smoking in most public areas.
