LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A bill designed to save Nebraska’s cigar bars is headed to a final vote in the Legislature.

Lawmakers advanced the measure Thursday through the second of three required votes.

The proposal by Sen. Tyson Larson of O’Neill comes after the Nebraska Supreme Court struck down a 2009 law that allowed smoking in cigar bars and shops, despite the Nebraska Clean Indoor Air Act.

The bill seeks to address to the court ruling by making it clear that lawmakers intended to create a legal exemption for those establishments so they could continue to operate.
