The Smoke-Free Illinois Act is Signed

With the signing of Senate Bill 500 into law as the Smoke-Free Illinois Act, Fako & Associates, Inc. would like to congratulate all the organizations that have worked tirelessly to protect public health in Illinois. We especially thank the American Lung Association, who lead the Smoke Free effort around the state. We also would like to thank the American Cancer Society and the American Heart Association for letting us be a part of making Illinois a Smoke Free State.

The signing of SB500 is a strong commitment by the State of Illinois to save hundreds of thousands of lives each year from the deadly affects of Second Hand Smoke. We are proud to have been a part of this effort with our statewide work and our city-specific initiatives in the city of Chicago, Oak Park and in our state’s capital, Springfield, Illinois.
