IN: Statewide smoking ban proposed

Posted by Rachel Folz- email

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (WFIE)- An Indiana lawmaker is pushing for a statewide smoking ban.

The ban would prohibit smoking in almost all enclosed public places.

That includes restaurants, bowling alleys, bars and casinos.

A similar piece of legislation came up last session but a vote was never taken.

Opponents of the bill say it would hurt businesses.

A similar ban went into effect in Illinois last January.
