Clark Co. Board of Health Protects Smoking Ban

The Clark County Board of Health is moving forward with plans to assist in a challenge to a Bullitt County court’s decision to overturn a smoking ban. Bullitt Circuit Judge Rodney Burress overturned the ban passed on March 23 after the Bullitt County Fiscal Court and the county’s eight cities challenged the health board’s authority to enact the ban. The Bullitt County Board of Health is appealing that decision, and the Woodford, Clark and Madison boards of health plan to file an amicus brief, as well, because the court’s decision would impact smoking bans in those counties.
