Illinois Governor Signs Smoking Ban

By Admin on July 24, 2007 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has signed a law which bans smoking in most public places throughout the state. According to the Chicago Tribune, "[t]he governor's action, which state health officials said makes Illinois the 19th state with a broad smoking ban, culminated nearly two decades of intense efforts by anti-smoking advocates to curtail smoking in public."

In New York, the state's Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Service (OASAS) is proposing that all addiction treatment facilities in the state become smoke-free by July of 2008, and have programs in place to help their patients stop smoking, according to the New York Times.
