Lafayette Councilman Works To Make Bars And Clubs Smoke Free
Tomorrow, Boudreaux will bring his ordinance to the council agenda.
Back in January Boudreaux said,
"Second-hand smoke has killed more people than any car or any speeder." Boudreaux said, comparing the ban of smoking indoors to using seat belts and enforcing speed limits. "It is our obligation to protect others in the public."
Carrier, a Grammy-winning entertainer, says he plays music most of the year, and he says many musicians, bartenders and servers don't want to work in an environment where they can't get away from second-hand smoke.
Tomorrow night's meeting starts at 5:30 p.m.
Kenneth Boudreaux announced on Friday he will seek re-election.
