Law | New Orleans City Council To Vote On Ban

Last night the New Orleans City Council held a town hall-style meeting at City Hall. According to published reports, 90% of those who spoke on the proposed ban spoke in favor of the ban including a blackjack dealer from Colorado who stated that she was “fortunate to live in a state that protects her from the effects of secondhand smoke.”

After listening to all the speakers last night the City Council is set to vote at the next meeting on January 22. If the measure is passed the law will go into effect in 90 days.
