Public universities and colleges in Illinois go smoke-free

Per PA 95-985, all publicly funded institutions of higher education in Illinois become 100% smoke-free.  While dormitories had been required to be smoke-free since 2008, this law expands that policy to require all campuses to be smoke-free.  This law followed on the heels of several successful voluntarily smoke-free campus policies, including at University of Illinois at Chicago, which was assisted by Respiratory Health Association.
