Smoking Ban on Laramie City Council Agenda

Laramie, WY – Laramie could become Wyoming's first city to institute a smoking ban. The City Council is preparing to consider a measure written by Laramie residents to outlaw smoking in all workplaces, including restaurants and bars. The Laramie school board gave its unanimous support to the proposal Wednesday. Residents behind the ordinance say it would protect people from secondhand smoke and help prevent children from taking up smoking. A similar ordinance failed narrowly in Casper three years ago.
