Onondaga County Legislature to Vote on Smoking Ban

Syracuse, NY – After years of debate, the latest bill prohibiting smoking in public places will be up for a vote in the Onondaga County legislature today.

The Warner-Winslow Bill would prohibit smoking in public places, such as restaurants, taverns, and bowling alleys.

Smaller establishments with less than 50 seats would have two years to comply with the law.

Sources in the county legislature say passage of the ban is likely.
