San Antonio To Go Smoke Free

Yesterday the city of San Antonio, TX voted to strengthen it's current ordinance to prohibit smoking in bars and pool/bingo halls along with all other businesses. Indianapolis and Jacksonville, FL are the only cities left in the top 15 cities by population without a comprehensive ordinance protecting all workers. The city of Jacksonville is unable to pass a policy that includes bars because it is preempted by the state so really it is just Indy without a comprehensive ordinance.

How long will we stand for other cities and states passing us by before we demand that Indianapolis be a smoke free city too? Take time today to reach out to your elected officials and ask them to support a policy that protects all workers from secondhand smoke.
