(LEXINGTON, Ky.) — Should government force restaurant and bar owners to ban smoking in their privately owned establishments? Should the Legislature be allowed to trump local smoking policies? Should constitutional principles surrender to the Nanny State?
These questions will be debated Monday night on Kentucky Educational Television’s “Kentucky Tonight,” an award-winning statewide public affairs program hosted by Bill Goodman at 8 p.m. ET.
Watch the hour-long show live on KET and at www.ket.org/live.
Ken Moellman, chairman of the state’s Libertarian Party and a spokesperson with Northern Kentucky CHOICE, will join Bluegrass Institute president Jim Waters in defending limited government that protects private-property rights and local control.
Supporting a centralized smoking ban out of Frankfort will be Dr. Shawn Jones, past president of the Kentucky Medical Association, and Ashli Watts, manager of public affairs for the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.
