Hearing Monday night on county smoking bill



Ready for Smoke Free Air in Howard County?

Give us ½ hour of your time to make it a reality

Do you remember signing a resolution in favor of smoke-free air in Howard County in the last year or so? At long last, it's time to finish the job and win healthier air for all Howard County workers, residents, and visitors. County Executive James N. Robey and County Councilman Ken Ulman introduced a very strong smoke-free air bill earlier this month. CB 38-2006 (click here for the bill) will make almost all indoor workplaces and public places smoke-free. It will also provide for a 15 ft breathe-easy buffer zone outside smoke-free workplaces and public places and make Merriweather Post Pavilion smoke-free. Along with our partners at the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, and American Lung Association, we urge you to help us win smoke-free air for all Howard Countians. How can you help?

Follow these simple instructions...

1. Come to the hearing next Monday for at least the first 1/2 hour. We really want to have a big crowd. Can you come? PLEASE??? Will you please let me know? We'll supply the stickers. You supply the "seat warmer"!! Bring family, friends, and neighbors. Let’s send a strong message of support to our Council champions. We need 3 votes to make it happen.

2. Send a letter of support for CB 38-2006. Tell our Council that you want smoke-free air in Howard County and that a phase-in for restaurants/bars is unnecessary! If you don't live in Howard County, tell them why a smoke-free Howard County will benefit you and your family!!!

To send an EZ FAX, go to

To send a Lung Alert Email, go to

Or if you want to send your own email to the Council, address it to and it will be delivered to all the members.

PLEASE!!! IT only takes a few seconds to do and will mean alot.

3. Please send this email to family and friends in the county and the state.

Much thanks!
