In February, the Rock Hill City Council declined to vote on a proposed smoking ban, but there was still a chance the smoking ban could formally advance in the near future. Now the City Council has backed even further away from a smoking ban.
The Rock Hill City Council voted 3-3 as to whether it should do further research on a smoking ban, meaning there will not be any additional research. While smokers might be celebrating, according to WRHI there is some indication a future vote on exploring a smoking could happen, but as now the propose is formally tabled.
