Bill to Watch

Representatives Charlie Brown and Eric Turners smoke free air bill is HB 1018, please add this number to your bill tracker. There may be an accompanying bill in the Senate but so far nothing is listed on the state website. HB 1018 is a good piece of legislation that if passed would make all Indiana workplaces smoke free including restaurants, bars and casinos. It will be interesting to see what happens to this bill during the legislative process, hopefully Indiana passes a strong bill that protects all workers from the harmful chemicals in secondhand smoke.
