KIRKSVILLE — Truman State University officials have voted to ban smoking within 25 feet of any building on campus.

The Kirksville Daily Express reported Monday that Truman's Board of Governors voted on Saturday to have the new restriction take effect Aug. 1.

According to statistics and poll results compiled by Truman State, 77.8 percent of the Truman community supports making the entire campus smoke free.

Your story is incorrect. TSU Board of Governors approved a resolution prohibiting smoking within 25 feet of any building. You report indicates they will only allow smoking within that specific location.
