INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- The House could vote as early as next week on a state wide smoking ban before sending it to the Senate.

And it also ads a broader exemption for casinos by allowing smoking anywhere on their property rather than just on gambling floors as originally proposed.
