Vermont’s top public health official said he is hopeful that a series of new laws restricting smoking will encourage more people to quit. Health Commissioner Dr. Harry Chen made the comments Friday when highlighting the new law that includes making Vermont the seventh state to outlaw smoking in cars that are carrying young children. Starting Tuesday, Vermont will become the sixth state to ban smoking in hotel rooms. The law will also ban smoking on all state property, on the property of hospitals, or secure residential recovery facilities owned or operated by the state. It also bans tobacco products at schools and child care centers. (AP)
