Will Another Louisiana Parish Go Smokefree?

by Julie H. on Tuesday, September 3, 2013

Ouachita Parish is likely to be the next municipality in Louisiana to go 100% smoke-free! The cities of Monroe and West Monroe and Ouachita Parish are all looking at local ordinances that will extend the Louisiana Smoke-Free Air Act to include bars and bingo halls. Currently only restaurants and workplaces are covered by this statewide legislation. 

These policies were introduced in Monroe and West Monroe on September 10 and will be introduced at Ouachita Parish Police Jury on September 16. Votes will take place in late September to early October.

If you live in Ouachita Parish, stay tuned for You're the Cure alerts on how you can help!  We look forward to celebrating these victories with you.
