Fort Worth’s City Council approved the smoking ban that will prohibit smoking in bars and bingo halls.
The Council voted Tuesday night after testimonies and discussing the ban 8-1 in favor of the ordinance.
The ban will limit smoking on patios and will also prohibit smoke shops from smoking if they are within 300 feet of a school, university or hospital.
Some bar owners have expressed their concern about the expanded restrictions and think it may be bad for business.
The law will take effect in 90 days.
