Indiana's Indoor Smoking Ban Goes Into Effect
10 months ago
Indiana residents will have fewer places to smoke under a new state law that takes effect today, according to WGN.
The smoking ban has finally passed after six years of legislative wrangling.
The ban covers all businesses in Indiana except for bars, casinos, horse-racing facilities, retail tobacco shops and hookah bars and private clubs.
Businesses must now remove all ashtrays and post signs stating smoking is prohibited within 8 feet of an entrance.
The Indiana House had approved smoking ban bills in five previous sessions only to see the Senate ignore it until this year.
