City Council Ready To Impose Full Smoking Ban On Atlantic City Casino Gaming Floors

Feather News

The City Council in Atlantic City is ready to pass a law that would ban smoking at Atlantic City's casinos.

Two years after New Jersey passed a smoking ban in most public buildings, the casinos were expempted from the law. But that exemption may end when the City Council meets next Wednesday.

The Casino Association of New Jersey said that the smoking ban will hurt revenues but said it will comply if the casinos have enough time to build the enclosed smoking lounges that is expected to be permitted under the new law.

The ban would take effect October 15 under the draft ordinance.
