Allegheny County Council to vote on proposed vaping ban

A divided Allegheny County Council Health and Human Services Committee voted Wednesday evening to send a proposal banning indoor vaping to the full council for full consideration under a neutral recommendation.

The proposal would prohibit vaping and e-cigarettes everywhere traditional cigarette smoking is not allowed, including health care-related properties, indoor workplaces, restaurants, schools, sports facilities, and transit stations. The proposal was crafted and recommended by the county health department in fall 2016.
