OLYMPIA State lawmakers today will take public comments on a bill that would make it illegal to smoke in a car with a child.
A public hearing on House Bill 2086, co-sponsored by East Wenatchee Repubublican Brad Hawkins, is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. today in 260A of the John L. O'Brien building on the Capitol Campus.
Under the bill, anyone lighting a cigarette, cigar or piple in an automobile or truck containing a child could be subject to a traffic citation and fine from $150-$250.
A child is anyone younger than age 18.
The citation would not affect driving records and would not be disclosed to insurance companies or employers, according to the bill's language.
