Cigar Bars, Shops Exempt From New Dallas Ban
Posted: December 10, 2008
Tobacconists and cigar bar owners in Dallas, Texas, can now sleep soundly. The city council voted this afternoon in favor of a smoking ban expansion that will exempt tobacco shops and cigar bars.
After more than four hours of debate, city council members passed a bill that eliminates smoking from bars, billiard halls and within 15 feet of business entrances. The vote was 10 to 5.
Smokers will be permitted to light up in business venues in which 15 percent of revenue stems from tobacco or tobacco-related products. This is a drop from the previous smoking ban, which used 20 percent of revenues as the definition of a legal cigar bar or tobacco shop.
The new law will go into effect April 10.
