Richmond to consider new smoking ban

RICHMOND, Ky. (WKYT) - The city of Richmond is about to begin the process of passing a new, city-wide indoor smoking ban for public places.

Madison County's ban was nullified by a Kentucky court ruling that said only elected bodies can enact smoking restrictions. In Madison County, the health department had passed the ban several years ago.

The Richmond Register reports the city commission will take it up on Tuesday.
