A committee for the Atlanta City Council voted in favor of a ban on smoking in most businesses.
The public safety and legal administration committee voted 5-1 in favor of the ban, which would ban smoking and vaping at most businesses that are enclosed, bars and restaurants.
Cigar stores would be exempt, as would cigar bars, any place that does not allow those under 21 in their business and generates either 20 percent of revenue or $250,000 annually from the sale of tobacco. This would cover approximately 20 bars.
The full city council is expected to vote on the bill on July 1.
