Law: Richmond, KY Considers Smoking Ban

The city of Richmond, KY city commission on Tuesday will begin the process of passing a new, city-wide indoor smoking ban for public places.

Several years ago, Madison County struck a ban but it was nullified when a Kentucky court ruling stated only elected bodies can enact smoking restrictions. The ban was put in place by the health department which was considered to be illegal.

Richmond is home to 32,000 residents.
