The city of Calabasas wants to do more than just ban smoking in all public places.At Wednesday's meeting, the City Council is expected to approve a comprehensive secondhand smoke ordinance. It would regulate smoking in and around rental housing.

The new ordinance would require at least 80 percent of apartments to be permanently designated as non-smoking units by 2012.

If passed, the new law would go into effect in 30 days.
