BISMARCK - Students are the catalyst behind a bill that would ban smoking with children in the car.

A group of North Dakota lawmakers has submitted a bill to make it unlawful for drivers or passengers to smoke if kids under 13 are in the car.


House Bill 1150 says this is regardless of whether a window is down or if the vehicle is parked or on private property. The proposed fine is $50.
