We have great news out of North Texas! The City of Mesquite unanimously passed a smoke-free ordinance, which will provide a safe working environment for all workers within the city! Thanks to the support of city council and our dedicated You're the Cure advocates, 144,416 more Texans will now breathe easier.
We would like to thank AHA Board Chair, Linda Fox (pictured), for her leadership and commitment to helping us build a healthier community. Mesquite, TX becomes the 51st Texas City to have a comprehensive smoke-free ordinance, and becomes the 11th Texas City since July 2016 to adopt such a law. This victory brings the total number of Texans covered by a smoke-free ordinance to 623,993.
