A stronger smoking ban in Indianapolis could be on the horizon.

Indianapolis City-County Council President Ryan Vaughn submitted a proposal Wednesday that would eliminate many of the loopholes in Indy’s current smoke-free law.

If passed, the ban would put an end to exemptions for bars, bowling alleys, hotel and motel rooms, workplaces and nursing homes.

Smoke Free Indy released a statement, following the announcement, which read in part:

"We encourage both Republicans and Democrats to give serious consideration to this proposal and work together to pass the strongest ordinance possible.

"Smoke Free Indy will continue to work toward a smoke-free ordinance that protects every worker in Indianapolis."
