While the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut has been trying to convince their workers that unionization is not good for either side, another problem has arose for the casino.

The state Senate passed a Bill by a 24-11 vote that will ban smoking in the state's casinos. The Bill actually will serve the workers better than a union could.

Many casino workers have complained that smoking in the casinos they work in is dangerous to their health. For years, they were basically told to deal with it by many casinos.

Now, since the casinos have had no concern for their employees health, the state has stepped in. Many states are moving towards these non smoking policies not only in casinos, but all public places.

The battle that has been taking place has been the typical one when dealing with smoking in casinos. The casinos are against any type of ban, fearing they will lose customers that smoke. The proponents of the smoking ban point to employee health as a reason the ban should be in place.

The Bill that was passed by the Senate in Connecticut will now be moved on to the House of Representatives. It is unlikely the Bill will come up for a vote in the House, according to House Speaker Jim Amann.
