Illinois Senate Passes Bill Banning Outdoor Smoking on College Campuses

State lawmakers are working on a bill that would ban outdoor smoking on college campuses in Illinois.

The measure bans smoking anywhere on campus, including parking lots, and applies to all public universities and community colleges.

Critics, like Senator Dale Righter of Mattoon, argue that schools should be able to set their own policies.

Smoking is already banned in college dorms.

The bill barely passed the senate and now faces more debate in the house.
