Public housing smoking ban praised

A new move from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, HUD, will require public housing to go smoke free.”By working collaboratively with public housing agencies, HUD’s rule will create healthier homes for all of our families and prevent devastating and costly smoking-related fires”, Castro said. According to Juliá Castro, the HUD Secretary, children should grow up in a healthy and safe environment free from the unsafe cigarette smoke.Since 2009, HUD has strongly encouraged PHAs to adopt smoke-free policies in their buildings and common areas, a policy many private housing developments already have in place.In a statement, HUD highlights that per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the new smoke-free policy is expected to yield a total of $153 million in savings every year. The HUD said violation of the smoking prohibition could be viewed as a lease violation, leaving some to worry that it might be used to force evictions.

He would face an Oakland defense allowing the seventh-most fantasy points to wide receivers this season.

In response to HUD’s encouragement, the San Antonio Housing Authority chose to execute the ban in 2012. “An overwhelming 80% of residents were in favor of the new policy”.Rob Dicke, executive director of Dane County Housing Authority, said he believes there will be health benefits for residents and financial benefits for the housing authority.Public housing authorities “may, but are not required to, further restrict smoking to outdoor dedicated smoking areas outside the restricted areas, create additional restricted areas in which smoking is prohibited (e.g., near a playground), or, alternatively, make their entire grounds smoke-free”.”It’s not about making a smoker-free housing environment”, she told the Rivard Report.”There are much more significant safety problems among other things in public housing across the United States and I think that should rightly be the focus of HUD”.

In explaining why Gasser was allowed to leave, Normand said authorities need to talk to more witnesses. Gasser remained at the scene, where McKnight was pronounced dead, and was taken into custody. Both the national rule and the Housing Authority’s policy ban smoking within 25 feet of public housing and administrative office buildings, but permit smoking-designated areas outside this range.Fluit said what some may perceive as an overreach of government is really a protection of individuals’ rights to protect their health.”That is something we’re concerned about because again we are talking about vulnerable people that don’t have the funds, that don’t have many options about where they’re going to live”, he said. “And for people living next to smokers, they don’t get to choose whether they live next to someone who’s smoking”. The blanket ban would add more than 940,000 public housing units that are home to more than 500,000 elderly residents and 760,000 children, according to HUD.The HUD ban relates specifically to cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and hookahs, but not vapes or Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS), stating that “research on ENDS is still developing and lacks clear consensus”.
