El Dorado Clean Indoor Air Ordinance Tabled

In other smoke-free news, volunteers in El Dorado packed the City Council Meeting on July 23 only to be disappointed. The City Council and the lead sponsor chose to “table” the ordinance that would have strengthened the Clean Indoor Act of 2006 for city bars and restaurants. This means the proposal was not voted on or debated.

Both sides were disappointed that the council did not act on the requirement that would have made all bars and restaurants smoke free in the city limits of El Dorado.

The current state law allows bars and restaurants to allow smoking if they do not at any time allow anyone under the age of 21 in the facility. El Dorado was the first city in the state to move forward with strengthening the state law but the issue will have to wait for another day.
