FAIRFAX, Va. -
There are already smoking sections and smoking bans, but now one county is considering a proposal to force its employees to attend classes to quit smoking.
The classes are currently voluntary.
The driving force behind the anti-smoking classes is supervisor Gerry Hyland.
He tried years ago to get Fairfax County to stop hiring smokers in hopes of saving the county money and promoting a healthy workforce.
Employees who light up in Fairfax County, cost about $12,000 extra a year.
Do you think mandatory smoking classes are a good idea?
