The bill received unanimous support from the board after undergoing a total of 4 amendments.
President of Cox Medical Center Branson William Mahoney attended the regular council meeting Tuesday and offered these comments about the plan…
Mahoney points out that Cox Branson became a tobacco-free campus in 2006, and stopped hiring tobacco users last November.
According to city staff members, it’s unclear exactly when the new smoke-free law will go into effect, but likely sometime in 2015. That’s contingent on second-reading approval by the board at its next meeting October 28th.
