Task Force Will Put UK Smoking Ban Into Effect

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - University of Kentucky President Lee T.
Todd Jr. has started a process to make the Lexington campus
smoke-free.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reported Lee told the UK Board of
Trustees on Tuesday he is appointing a task force to plan and
implement a ban on smoking that would include outdoor areas.
There's already a smoking ban inside university dormitories and
all other buildings. Smoking is also prohibited in and on the
grounds of the UK Chandler Medical Center.
According to Todd, 160 other colleges and universities in the
nation ban all smoking on their campuses.
Still to be decided is whether the coming ban will apply to UK
satellite campuses.
