Group pushing for a statewide smoke free law

Posted: Updated:

Baptist Health in Paducah was one of the last stops for the Smoke Free Kentucky tour Friday afternoon.

The group is looking to drum up support for a statewide smoke free law.

Chairperson Amy Barkley says second hand smoke exposure causes about 1,000 deaths a year in Kentucky.

They've partnered with Dr. Shawn Jones who is optimistic about their chances to pass the law this time around.

"The message is getting out there to the constituents and when the message gets to the constituents then it's going to get to the lawmakers as well," said Dr. Jones.

The Smoke Free tour head to Fancy Farm on Saturday for the last stop in the 10 city tour.
