Madison approves smoking ban
Published: May 5,2010
MADISON — Madison has adopted a smoke-free-air ordinance, switching from a voluntary ban on tobacco that all city businesses followed.
The change passed unanimously on Tuesday.
Mayor Mary Hawkins Butler is expected to sign the ordinance Wednesday or Thursday. The law will go into effect 30 days after she signs it.
Butler tells The Clarion-Ledger the reason for moving from voluntary to mandatory is because of the growth of the city.
Madison joins more than 30 cities in the state that have smoking restrictions. In the metro area, Brandon, Clinton, Flora and Ridgeland have banned smoking in public places.
