Smoke-Free St. Charles County Coalition

We are working towards smoke-free indoor air in all workplaces.

Good for Health

Exposure to secondhand smoke increases the risk of heart disease and lung cancer. Making all workplaces smoke-free can improve public health for everyone who lives, works and plays here. Residents of St. Charles are left unprotected due to lack of a strong countywide law that protects everyone.

Good for Business

A CDC study measuring the economic impact of smoke-free laws in 11 Missouri communities found that eight of the 11 cities had increased taxable sales for eating and drinking establishments post ordinance. The remaining three experienced no change. A smoke-free ordinance does not harm a local economy.

Good for Our Region

Most of the United States population is covered under smoke-free policies. Other leading cities like Kansas City, Chicago, and New Orleans have already gone smoke-free. Currently, there are 34 local smoke-free indoor air laws in Missouri. We are missing out on conventions and tourism without a smoke-free indoor air law.
