Boone County Businessmen Association holding indoor smoking forum

FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) - Even though Kentucky doesn't have a statewide smoking ban, the idea of snuffing out cigarettes in Northern Kentucky is picking up momentum.

The Boone County Businessmen Association is holding a free/public indoor smoking forum starting at 6:45 p.m. on Thursday, July 29 at Holiday Inn at 7905 Freedom Way in Florence to explore the issue.

Members of the association want to hear the public's thoughtS on a smoking ban in Boone County.

H.B. Deatherage, the group's president, says he believes it's the business community's responsibility to have a say on a smoke free community.

Several advocacy group's have been lobbying for a smoke-free law in Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties for more than two years.
