Elkhart May Change Smoking Laws


Elkhart may be the next Indiana city to debate a public smoking ban due to a "clean air" committee that has been formed one day after Goshen passed a smoking ban.

Last night, the city council voted 5-to-1 to ban smoking in most businesses, with the exception of bars that goes into effect September first.

The ordinance was pushed by a citizens committee chaired by Richard Pedler.

He told us today, the Elkhart clean air committee will approach the City Council about a possible smoking ban there in weeks to come.
