As of April 11th, we're one step closer to making Arlington, Texas smoke-free!
On Tuesday April 11th, The Arlington City Council had a first reading and vote on the Smoke-Free ordinance. We're happy to report that they voted 6-3 in favor of adopting this ordinance and protecting their workers!
While we are thankful for the leadership of the City Council and this outcome, the fight is not over yet.
The City Council will have a second and final vote on April 25th and we need to keep showing support for a smoke-free city. Over 70 cities in Texas have gone smoke-free and it's time for Arlington to be next.
