Evansville officials have not yet decided how to move forward following Tuesday's Supreme Court Decision, but one organization has a suggestion.

Smoke Free Communities is calling on the city to address what it calls the shortcomings of the current ordinance.  It is asking the city to adopt a new ordinance which bans smoking in all public places, including the casino.

On Tuesday the Indiana Supreme Court overturned Evansville smoking ban because it prohibited smoking in all public places, except the casino.  The high court says the law showed favoritism to one business over the others.
