Opponents of the expanded smoking ban that took effect in June say they’ve gathered more than enough signatures to put a repeal of the ordinance before Springfield voters.

The group Live Free Springfield, which campaigned against the smoking ban before it was passed in April, has been circulating petitions seeking a repeal since November.

“As of right now we have over 4,000 signatures,” said spokesman Dave Myers. “That shows a lot of support from a lot of people that are really seeing the effects of this ban.”
