The Montgomery County Council will hold a public hearing Tuesday on its proposal to ban smoking on any property owned or leased by county government.
The proposed ban, introduced in November by Councilwoman Nancy M. Floreen, would apply to the land around recreation centers and county buildings, for example, but not bus shelters and sidewalks, The Washington Examiner reported.

The council will also vote on President Nancy Navarro's resolution urging the governor and state lawmakers to tighten restrictions on gun and ammunition sales.
