NASHVILLE (AP) - Lawmakers are considering a proposal to exempt churches from a state law that requires "No Smoking" sings be posted at their entrances.

The state's indoor smoking ban went into effect in October. The ban applies to most indoor businesses and public places and requires that the international "No Smoking" symbol be posted at all entrances.

The measure is sponsored by Sen. Dewayne Bunch, a Cleveland Republican. It is scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Commerce Committee next week.
