Movement across the state

Yesterday was a big day for those in the smoke free movement.

In Aiken county a new smoke free law was passed, but it exempted bars. While we applaud their efforts it is imperative that bars be included in these new smoke free laws. We must protect ALL workers and that includes those who work in bars. You can read the full article from the Aiken Standard.

The most exciting news came from Hilton Head where a true comprehensive smoke free ordinance was passed! We applaud Hilton Head and thank the advocates who have been calling and writing their elected officials to get this new law passed. You can read about the great news in the Island Packet.

We will keep you updated on more news from across the state as it comes in.
