San Marcos writes indoor smoking ban

The City of San Marcos is working on writing an indoor smoking ban. While most restaurants in the city have their own smoking bans, some still keep sections reserved for smokers or have certain hours where people can smoke inside.

The draft will be voted on by city residents in November's election. KXAN says that another smoking ban failed to pass in San Marcos about 10 years ago. Furthermore, the news source says that on August 1st, a smoking ban will be going into effect at Texas State University.
