Ginny Campbell, the nonprofit's government relations director says that while many cities restrict smoking in restaurants and other public places, Alabama is one of just 15 states without some type of smoke-free workplace law.

The state Senate passed a smoke-free bill during the 2008 legislative session but it never made it to a vote in the House.

Campbell tells The Huntsville Times that the latest campaign has gotten some support from both Republican and Democratic lawmakers, but no one has committed to sponsor a bill.
