Lowell, IN Goes Smoke Free

Last night the Lowell Town Council passed a comprehensive smoke free air law covering all workplaces including restaurants, bars and private clubs by a vote of 4-1. The new law will go into effect January 2, 2011.

This passage is an important step towards making the entire state smoke free, by motivating other Indiana communities to follow suit. Hopefully Indianapolis will join Lowell in protecting all workers from secondhand smoke sooner rather than later.
