St. Paul goes smoke free

Categories: St. Paul
The St. Paul City Council gave final approval this afternoon, by a 4-3 margin, to a comprehensive smoking ban in bars and restaurants. Mayor Chris Coleman intends to immediately sign the bill. The ban will take affect on March 31st. St. Paul joins Minneapolis, Bloomington, and Golden Valley in outlawing smoking in bars and restaurants.


In a statement Coleman pledged to fight for a statewide prohibition.
"Now that we have seen the two largest cities in Minnesota join thousands of cities across the country in similar smoke-free ordinances, I will work to urge the state legislature to take the next step and pass a statewide ban," he says.
