Kansas goes smoke-free

The House Committee on Health and Human Services introduced the bill that became the statewide smoking ban. It was passed by both the House and the Senate and was signed by the Governor on March 12, 2010. On July 1, 2010, Kansas' new smoking ban will become effective. To assist law enforcement, businesses, restaurants, hotels and others in the transition, Kansas has developed a new site with tailored instructions and fact sheets about how to implement this new law.
