MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia University's Board of Governors has given initial approval to a ban on using electronic cigarettes on campus.
The Dominion Post reports the change to the university's tobacco- and smoke-free campus rule was unanimously approved on first reading Friday. There will be a public comment period before the proposal goes back for final adoption.
In addition to the ban, the proposal will create a Tobacco and Smoke Free Campus Steering Committee and increase the school's commitment to providing smoking cessation resources. The proposal also calls for developing a process for enforcing the ban.
Copies of the proposal will be posted on the university's website at policies.wvu.edu.
