Smoking Ban Supporters to Rally Prior to Tonight's County Council Meeting


Members of the St. Louis County Council could vote tonight on a proposed bill that would ask its residents to vote on an indoor smoking ban.

Prior to tonight's 6 p.m. council meeting, the group Smoke Free St. Louis plans to hold a rally in downtown Clayton in support of the ban. The rally begins at 4:30 p.m. in front of the Lawrence K. Roos building. (Map here).

The group's Facebook site encourages both St. Louis City and County residents to attend tonight's forum as the city won't pass a similar bill unless the county does as well.
