Students Seeking Less Smoke at State Fair

KSAL StaffMarch 7, 2014

Several Hutchinson students want to limit smoking at the Kansas state fairgrounds.

About 25 members of Communities that Care, a Reno County youth organization, asked the Kansas State Fair board on Thursday to consider their proposal to make the grounds smoke-free, except for a few designated smoking areas.

The Hutchinson News reports smoking isn’t allowed now in the buildings or in the grandstand.

The students said other state fairs have implemented similar policies.

Fair Manager Denny Stoecklein says more studies would be needed to determine how other fairs implemented such plans, and the board would not make any decisions without getting more feedback from patrons.
