Smoking ban passed 8 years ago in Iowa City

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- A smoking ban was passed for some Iowa City restaurants January 8, 2002.

The ban applied to establishments that served more food than alcohol.  The Iowa Supreme Court later ruled cities cannot impose stricter smoking laws than the state.

Not long after, in 2003, the city council repealed the ordinance.
