TOPEKA, Kan. — The debate on smoking in restaurants and bars has been settled in many places; and the majority has ruled with smoking bans in cities and states all over the country.

In Kansas, on Wednesday, the debate resumes, as Kansas Supreme Court justices hear oral arguments over a portion of the statewide smoking ban.

The Downtown Bar and Grill in Tonganoxie has challenged the ban. The bar and grill’s attorney says the business received its club license in May 2009, five months after a cutoff date contained in the law. The attorney says the date was arbitrary and would force his client out of business if he had to comply with the ban.
