If approved, smoking would be banned at billiard halls, nightclubs, public parks, bowling alleys and strip clubs.

Also included are the private clubs at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

Currently, these kind of businesses are allowed to have smokers as long as they don't employ anyone under the age of 18, have proper HVAC systems, and their business doesn't open into a hotel or other public place.

Smoking is already illegal in Arlington restaurants.
