Kentucky is working to support a statewide smokefree air law to protect the health of all Kentucky workers. Please visit Smoke Free Kentucky to learn more and to get involved.

ANR recognizes Kentucky as a national leader in protection from secondhand smoke in the workplace. With the passage of numerous local smokefree laws, including Lexington, Louisville and capital-city Frankfort, Kentucky is making progress toward ensuring the right of all citizens to breathe smokefree air in workplaces and public places.

Visit the University of Kentucky's Kentucky Tobacco Policy Research Program to learn more about these laws.

Kentucky law does not preempt the passage of local smokefree laws. Read more about current tobacco-related legislation in Kentucky.

Current tobacco-related statistics are available from the Centers for Disease Control's Tobacco Control State Highlights, 2010.
