A proposed smoke-free housing resolution was discussed by Queens Borough Board members during a May 9 meeting.

The purpose of this resolution is to protect other residents, mainly children, from the dangers of secondhand smoke that could otherwise vent from the units of the smokers to theirs. Landlords could recommend (but not force) tenants who smoke to do so outside for the safety of other residents.
