All RI Public Housing 100% Smoke Free

All public housing in Rhode Island is now 100 percent compliant with a new federal law designed to protect residents against second-hand smoke.  A new rule takes effect today banning smoking from all indoor areas and within 25-feet of buildings.  Officials with the state Department of Health say each of Rhode Island's public housing authorities met the new requirements by implementing smoke-free policies that in some cases exceed federal guidelines.
