EBR Metro Council could vote on smoking ban at Wednesday's meeting

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Baton Rouge leaders could vote on extending the city's smoking ban to include bars and casinos.

A campaign for a smoke-free East Baton Rouge Parish launched in January.

The team behind it said the ban would protect the health of thousands of employees in the service and gaming industry.

However, casinos said it will drive away customers meaning Baton Rouge would lose visitors and money.
