Smoking ban expansion to be proposed at Council meeting Monday

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

Indianapolis

The smoking ban proposal will go before the City-County Council Monday.

Indianapolis City-County Council President Ryan Vaughn will introduce the proposal at a meeting Monday night that would eliminate many of the loopholes in Indianapolis’ 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.

The smoking ban is eligible for final passage on December 19, meaning many local businesses could be smoke-free before the Super Bowl.

If it is signed into law, it would take effect on January 22, two weeks before the big game at Lucas Oil Stadium.
