Arkansas Hospital Smoking Ban Bill

The Arkansas House has given its approval to a bill that would ban smoking at all hospital campuses in the state.

The bill would even eliminate designated smoking places at hospital parking lots and other areas.

Violations would carry a $25.00 fine.

The sponsor of the bill is Jay Bradford of White Hall.

Bradford says the measure would not apply to Federally Administered Veterans Administration Hospitals.
