MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A public hearing has been set for Dec. 22 on a proposed ordinance that would restrict smoking in many buildings and public spaces.

The proposed ordinance would also prohibit smoking within 20 feet of business entrances, public transportation stations or playgrounds.

The city’s Health, Education & Recreation Standing Committee is hearing concerns from residents.

The Montgomery Advertiser repots (https://on.mgmadv.com/13bS452) that city officials anticipate the council voting on the ordinance sometime in January or February.
