It's Official: Proposal 371!

The proposed comprehensive smoke free workplace ordinance, Proposal 371, was introduced last night before Indianapolis-Marion County City-County Council, and it was assigned to the Community Affairs committee.

Proposal 371 is a proposed comprehensive smoke free workplace ordinance that makes all workplaces smoke free, including bars, bowling alleys and clubs.

The next scheduled meeting of the Community Affairs committee is next Wednesday, October 14th at 5:30pm. At this point, per standard council procedure, this committee hearing is the single planned opportunity for concerned citizens, community leaders and other important stakeholders to testify before the council and speak in support of Proposal 371. Please save the date, plan to attend, and if you want to testify send an email to info@smokefreeindy.com.

Meanwhile, this is what you can do:
- Write a letter or call your councillor and ask him to support Proposal 371 (Click here to find out who your councillor is http://www.indy.gov/eGov/Council/Councillors/Pages/home.aspx).
- Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper in support of smoke free workplaces.
