Smoking in a vehicle where a child under 17 is present would be illegal under a bill filed by House Speaker Greg Stumbo.
A person in a vehicle with a child could not smoke "cigars, cigarettes or other tobacco in any form" under House Bill 216.
The legislation, which is similar to laws in four other states, would create a fine of $25 for the first offense and $50 for each subsequent offense.
