Henry County passes countywide smoking ban

Henry County is the latest Indiana municipality to pass a smoking ban for public places.  The Henry County Commissioners approved the countywide ban on Wednesday night.  Three exceptions to the ban are bars, bingo halls, and private clubs.  Bars have to meet four strict requirements to be exempted — they have to hold a state-issued beer, liquor, or wine license … not allow any customers under the age of 18 to enter … not have any employees under the age of 18 … and not be physically located within another business that must comply with the smoking ban.  The ban goes into effect on January 11th.
