On April 19th, 2007, AMSA members from UMMS joined medical students from across the state in Lansing, MI to lobby for a statewide smoking ban. The students lobbied senators and representatives in support of Senate Bill 109 and House Bill 4163, which ban smoking in all workplaces including bars and restaurants. On Tuesday, July 24th, House Bill 4163 passed victoriously within the Michigan House of Representatives Commerce Committee; a vote in the full House of Representatives is now pending.
