Statement on House Bill 1149 Passing Out of Committee


The Indiana Campaign for Smokefree Air is pleased that House Bill 1149 received overwhelming support during Wednesday’s committee meeting, marking the next step in passing a strong smokefree law in Indiana.


We are looking forward to educating the full House about the merits of House Bill 1149 and the importance of passing it with its current language.


We stand with Gov. Daniels in wanting to pass the “strongest possible law with the fewest possible exemptions.”
