Despite successes in smoke-free policies, million of nonsmokers across the country, the state and in our community are still exposed to secondhand smoke. Secondhand smoke is a known cause of heart disease, cancer and chronic lung ailments.

The good news is we know that comprehensive smoke-free laws save lives. Research has shown that strong smoke-free policies can reduce heart attack rates by as much as 47 percent. Now, I would say that’s a pretty astounding statistic, however, I would be completely satisfied with saving even one life.
