Recently the Indiana Campaign for Smokefree Air (ICSA) hosted a rally in Greenfield to call attention to the importance of passing a statewide comprehensive smoke free law in Indiana.

Here is an exert from their press release "Nearly 100 smoke free advocates and concerned citizens joined with members of the Indiana Campaign for Smokefree Air (ICSA) to rally in Greenfield Thursday evening to ask Indiana legislators to adopt a comprehensive statewide smoke free workplace law that protects ALL employees from exposure to secondhand smoke in Hoosier workplaces. The event included a panel session followed by a question-and-answer period with the public. Panelists included: a pulmonologist, a local hospital CEO, a longtime Indiana casino worker, a business owner, a common council president, a youth leader and a tobacco control professional...... In bringing about the forum, smoke free advocates renewed their push for a statewide smoke free air law that protects all Hoosier workers from secondhand smoke exposure. The town hall meeting is the first in a series of grassroots events planned for communities across Indiana."
