(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - A new study indicates the annual economic impact of secondhand smoke in Marion County is $47.5 million or $54 dollars per person each year.
The study was conducted by IU's Bowen Research Center.
The Indianapolis city-county council is considering joining at least 23 other Indiana cities in instituting a smoke free workplace ordinance.
The ban would include all workplaces, bars, restaurants, bowling alleys and membership clubs.
The council could bring the ordinance to a vote Monday night.
