* Oh, heck. I forgot to post a question. Let’s do this one: AP…
Smoking will be banned indoors and out on all Illinois public college and university campuses starting next summer under legislation signed yesterday by Gov. Pat Quinn.
Quinn said the measure, which takes effect July 1, 2015, applies to all state-supported schools and will protect students’ health and help nonsmokers avoid unwanted smoke “on the campuses they call home.”
Smoking still will be permitted inside privately owned vehicles and during some activities protected by the federal American Indian Religious Freedom Act.
Health officials praised the law, saying it could help reduce smoking rates.
* The Question: Do you agree or disagree with this smoking ban? Take the poll and then explain your answer in comments, please.
