Rock Springs Could Go Smoke-Free

Laramie, WY – The Rock Springs City Council is considering drafting an ordinance that would ban smoking in public places. The idea is being supported by Wyoming's health care community. Loretta Wolf of the Wyoming Chapter of the American Cancer Society says such bans are gaining in popularity.

The Rock Springs City Council took public comment on the proposal and will consider such a ban next week. Laramie, Evanston and Cheyenne have already enacted similar bans on smoking.
