Beginning next July, all Illinois colleges and universities will be smoke-free—inside and out. From the Chicago Sun-Times:
Smoking will be banned indoors and out on all Illinois public college and university campuses starting next summer under legislation signed Sunday by Gov. Pat Quinn.
Quinn said the measure, which takes effect July 1, 2015, applies to all state-supported schools and will protect students' health and help nonsmokers avoid unwanted smoke "on the campuses they call home."
Smoking still will be permitted inside privately owned vehicles and during some activities protected by the federal American Indian Religious Freedom Act.
