Bill Seeks to Ban Smoking at VA Facilities

Null

A bill has been introduced that would ban smoking at Veterans Health Administration (VHA) facilities in the next five years.

Rep. Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio, has introduced H.R. 1662, which would ban smoking inside and outside VHA facilities. According to Wenstrup, the VHA has 15 indoor smoking areas and 971 outdoor designated smoking areas at its facilities. The bill would seek to remove those within the next five years, making the VHA smoke-free.
