JESSAMINE COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– Kentucky lawmakers are considering a bill that would create a state-wide uniform ban on all forms of tobacco and e-cigarette use on school campuses.
The Jessamine County School District already has campus-wide bans on smoking already in place.
“In 2014 we decided we needed to come back and revisit the topic, because we were seeing that transition to e-cigarettes. so we wanted to make sure that there was clarity in our policies. So we went smoke-free and nicotine-free at that point,” said Jessamine County Schools Superintendent Matt Moore.
Representative Kim Moser is sponsoring House Bill 11, the “Tobacco Free Schools Bill.”
