AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to the use  and  sale  of
  tobacco  at state-operated institutions of the state university of New
  York

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.    Legislative  intent. The legislature finds and declares
that it shall be the policy of the state university of New  York  (SUNY)
to  ensure that all state-operated campuses embrace a tobacco-free envi-
ronment. Tobacco use is the number one preventable cause of death in the
United States and accounts for more annual deaths than suicide,  murder,
HIV/AIDS,  alcohol  use,  illegal  drug  use  and motor vehicle injuries
combined. Using tobacco is a personal choice, a tobacco-free policy does
not take away an individual's right to choose to use  tobacco,  it  does
limit  where  a  person  may  use tobacco. SUNY respects an individual's
right to choose to use tobacco off campus, in places where it is accept-
able to do so. SUNY is first and foremost an educational institution.
  S 2. Section 355 of the education law  is  amended  by  adding  a  new
subdivision 20 to read as follows:
  20. THE FOLLOWING ARE PROHIBITED AT STATE-OPERATED INSTITUTIONS OF THE
STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK:
  A.  THE  USE  OR  SALE OF TOBACCO ON ALL GROUNDS AND FACILITIES OWNED,
LEASED OR CONTROLLED BY THE STATE UNIVERSITY OR  ITS  RELATED  ENTITIES,
INCLUDING INDOOR AND OUTDOOR LOCATIONS; AND

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
