As local leaders prepare to introduce a casino, we revisit the clean air ordinance

VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) – Local nonprofits hope that the casino that will open in Terre Haute will comply with the indoor clean air ordinance.

You will remember last week, we took you on a tour of a non-smoking casino in Cincinnati, Ohio.

We took a step back and revisited that ordinance.

It entered into force in July 2012.

Since then, any business that arrives in Vigo County has and will be smoke free.

This ordinance has been revived again as Terre Haute prepares to host in a separate casino.

With this policy in place, this means that you will not be able to smoke inside the new casino.

Politics also say that you can’t smoke in any workplace.

We spoke to Joni Wise at the health department.

He wrote this policy.

Wise claimed that smoking tobacco killed too many Hoosiers.

“We considered it an ordinance on workplace protection and the ability to try to make our citizens live longer and healthier lives. It is the norm to work in an environment with clean air inside,” said Wise. .
