Update: The Montgomery County Council today extended protections for non-smokers from secondhand smoke. Way to go!
One of the provisions of the measure makes bus stops smokefree.
Will the District follow suit? It should.
Montgomery County Councilmember Nancy Floreen, who sponsored the measure, noted:
There is no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke. We are stewards of public health. The passage of Bill 33-12 will help us to protect our residents, employees and visitors from dangerous exposure.
