“Take It Outside Act” to be signed July 17

From Heather Aronno, Alaska Grassroots Manager; American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, Inc.

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.
