Alaska Governor Bill Walker will be signing the smoke-free workplace bill, clearing the “Take It Outside Act” to go into effect on October 1, 2018.
The signing will take place on Tuesday, July 17, at 10:30 am at The Lucky Wishbone restaurant.
The governor chose The Lucky Wishbone as the location of this bill signing because it was the first smoke-free restaurant in Alaska.
Owner George Brown decided to make his establishment smoke-free in 1990 to honor his mother who passed away from cancer.
George passed away earlier this year and the signing of the smoke-free workplace bill will surely be another piece of his legacy.
