Committee to consider smoking ban changes

Urban County Councilman David Stevens' proposed revisions to Lexington's smoke-free law will be heard by the council's services committee on Sept. 9.

Stevens introduced a proposal Tuesday that would close loopholes that exempt some workplaces and private organizations from complying with the law and would tighten the exemption for retail tobacco stores.

The council's planning committee unanimously decided that it would be more appropriate for the services committee to review the proposed changes to the smoking ban.
