CLAYTON — It's official. A proposed indoor smoking ban in St. Louis County is going to the voters.
St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley, a former smoker, announced Friday he supports the ban and that the proposal will be on the Nov. 3 ballot.
KSDK reported Dooley said it was important to put the matter before the voters.
Earlier this week, the St. Louis County Council approved a bill that would ban smoking in public places with the exception of casino gaming floors and businesses with 75 percent of their sales coming from alcohol.
Dooley said that if it were up to him, he would ban it everywhere with no exceptions.
