A group of Indiana health and business organizations are pushing for a repeal of some legal protections given to smokers. The Alliance for a Healthier Indiana wants to get rid of state law that bans employers from screening job candidates for tobacco use, according to the Indianapolis Business Journal.  The group supports a bill introduced by Republican Sen. Liz Brown of Fort Wayne to repeal the 1991 law. The measure would allow companies to require employees to stop using tobacco products, even when not on the clock.
