Smoking Near Youth Sports Events Is Closer To Being Banned In California
Cigarette smoking would be banned within 250 feet of all youth sports events in California under legislation approved Thursday by the state Assembly. Sen. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento), who is a pediatrician, cited the health risk of secondhand smoke to young people when he introduced the bill. It was proposed by an eighth-grade class at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Elementary School in Elk Grove. (McGreevy, 8/18)
