Smokefree DC is a citizen-based group whose goal is to promote smokefree environments in Washington, DC.

Smokefree wins this week

South Dakota voters this week approved a comprehensive smokefree measure that will make almost all public places in that state smokefree, including casinos. The measure passed overwhelmingly.

And in several cities — including Fulton, Mo.; Jefferson City, Mo. and San Angelo, Texas, voters passed strong smokefree workplace measures that covered restaurants and bars.

So when are we going to stop doing this piecemeal and just pass a federal law covering all states? Oh, I forgot. The “drown government in the bathtub unless we need taxpayer money to prop up our friends in the oil/nuclear/financial industry” Republicans just took over the House of Representatives. Never mind.
