Beginning Tuesday, smoking in and around the more than 900,000 public housing units is now prohibited.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) now prohibits the use of cigarettes, cigars and pipes in all public housing units and common areas, as well as any outdoor areas up to 25 feet from public housing and administrative office buildings. "So, they had 45 days to talk about it".
The new policy only applies to all lit tobacco products and does not include e-cigarettes. "They have more things to fix than telling somebody they can't smoke", Robinson said.
The new nationwide HUD rule's goal is to provide healthier homes to public housing residents. That's something tenants have told us they're anxious about.
"We actually implemented a smoking ban on smoking in the high rise units, our three high rise buildings a long time ago, several years ago", said Doug Wells, executive director for Pennington County Housing. Not only does smoking impact the smoker, but HUD is hoping to reduce the amount of exposure of secondhand smoke to others.
The federal ban will save public agencies an estimated $153 million every year in costs related to health care due to secondhand smoke, as well as repairs and losses from preventable fires, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
