Proposal 371, Smokefree Workplace Law Covering Bars, Passed Out of Indianapolis City Council Committee!!!

Proposal 371, smokefree workplace ordinance that expands Indianapolis' law to bars, bowling alleys and other workplaces, was approved by the Indianapolis City-County Council's Community Affairs Committee by a 4-2 vote.

The committee amended the ordinance to exclude cigar and hookah bars, but otherwise the ordinance remains unchanged.

Thanks to all who came out to yesterday's hearing to testify or just show support, and also to those who have worked hard to get us to this point.

There's a lot of work to do before this is over.

The ordinance next will be considered by the full council on Monday, October 26th.
Now is the time to make contact with the MAYOR and YOUR COUNCIL MEMBERS to ask then to support Proposal 371 without further amendment.

Here are some of the news stories regarding the Community Affairs Committee Meeting last night:
