On March 19, 2012, Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels signed into law a statewide smoke-free air policy prohibiting smoking in most public places and many workplaces.
Indiana's statewide smoke-free air law begins July 1, 2012. The smoke-free air proposal narrowly passed after extensive compromises expanded the number of exemptions to include bars, casinos, private clubs such as fraternal and veterans’ organizations, and retail tobacco shops.
The statewide law does allow Indiana cities and counties to determine whether a local smoke-free air law should include bars, casinos, private clubs such as fraternal and veterans’ organizations, and retail tobacco shops. Each city and county may pass a stronger smoke-free air law. Be sure to check your local laws.
