Smoking ban sought in N. Ky.

A proposal to regulate indoor smoking in northern Kentucky is expected to come to a vote this summer.

An advocacy group, Northern Kentucky Action, has been lobbying for a smoke-free law in Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties for more than two years.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports that the group’s proposal would include restaurants and other public places in the three counties. A coalition of small businesses, NKYchoice, is opposing any smoking ban.

Kenton County Judge-executive Ralph Drees says he wants officials in his county to vote on the issue in June.
