  • Butler County Community College leaders are considering a proposal to ban smoking and tobacco on all its campuses.
    A task force created last year to consider the proposal presented its findings last week to the college's Board of Trustees, which could vote on the issue in March.
    KAKE-TV reports Butler currently bans smoking inside campus buildings but smoking is allowed outside 25 feet from the buildings.
    Bill Rinkenbaugh, a vice president at the school, says if the policy was approved, it might be implemented in the upcoming fall semester.
    He estimates the college would spend between $25,000 and $30,000 to implement the ban, for signs and educational materials.
    So far, about a dozen small colleges in Kansas have banned tobacco.
