A new ordinance that would ban smoking at bars and clubs is set to go to vote at the city-parish council on May 5th.
According to reports Council Chairman Kenneth Boudreux has been working with Grammy Award Winning artist Chubby Carrier along with Tobacco-Free Living to draft an ordinance for the City of Lafayette.
If approved the measure would ban the use of tobacco products and electronic cigarettes in bars and pubs.
According to the report Carrier teamed up with Boudreaux last year, asking the councilman (who enjoys a good cigar from time to time) to protect people from second-hand smoke.
Lafayette, Louisiana is home to 124,000 residents over 47.68 square miles and was founded in 1821.
