Rockville Bans Smoking in Outdoor Restaurants

Legislation to ban smoking in outdoor dining areas in Rockville was passed the City Council.  The bill was sponsored by Julie Palakovich Carr.

Rockville became the second city in Maryland to pass such legislation and is the first jurisdiction in the DC-metropolitan area to ban smoking in outdoor seating areas at restaurants.

"I think this is an important step for public health in Rockville," said Palakovich Carr.
