Indiana Lawmaker Wants Smoking Ban
Posted: December 13, 2010
Indiana state Representative Charlie Brown, D-Gary, has filed paperwork to introduce a bill at next year's General Assembly that calls for the prohibition of smoking in all public establishments with no exemptions for any businesses.
This includes bars, restaurants and casinos.
This is Brown's fourth attempt to instill a statewide smoking ban of some sort. Last year, his bill passed a vote in the House, albeit after numerous exemptions were added, but then stalled in committee before it could be voted on in the Senate.
In a report from the Indianapolis Business Journal, Brown said he would resist any amendments to the bill that would exempt businesses like casinos and bars.
"Once you start saying you are exempt because of these reasons," Brown said in the report, "then everybody's going to come up with a reason as to why they should be exempt as well."
Although Indiana does not have an official smoking ban on the books, the city of Indianapolis eliminated smoking in all places of employment, including bars and taverns that allow patrons under the age of 18 inside.
