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