LENEXA - Latest News
The Kansas legislature passed the Kansas Clean Indoor Air Act making all public places and workplaces statewide smoke free, including restrictions in bars and restaurants. The law becomes effective on July 1, 2010, and provides exemptions for private clubs in existence before Jan. 1, 2009, tobacco retail shops, 20% of hotel rooms and casino floors throughout the state.
For Lenexa this means that their 2008 smoking ordinance will remain in effect. The ordinance does include an exemption for tobacco retail shops.
We would like to thank the Lenexa City Council and citizens for taking the initiative with their 2008 smoking ordinance.
