OKLAHOMA CITY (May 6, 2015) - A bill signed by Gov. Mary Fallin on Wednesday will protect all Oklahoma public school children from the influences and hazards of tobacco use and secondhand smoke on school campuses.
Fallin signed House Bill 1685 which requires all school campus to be tobacco free, 24-hours a day, seven-days a week. State law requires schools to be smokefree during the school day. This new law, which takes effect later this year, will provide additional protections for school children and visitors during school-sponsored events on campus.
