Smoking-ban proposal moves forward

January 19, 2012

A proposed smoking ban with new exemptions is on its way to the full City-County Council. A committee passed the plan Tuesday night. The ban would exclude off-track betting facilities, tobacco stores, hookah bars and some other clubs. It would allow membership clubs to vote on whether to allow smoking as long as all members were older than 18. The full council will hear the proposal Jan. 30.
