A resolution passed at a regular meeting of the Johns Hopkins Medicine Board of Trustees stated that the Board 'confirms and states its commitment to the public health of the citizens of Maryland and requests that the Maryland General Assembly swiftly pass legislation banning smoking in all indoor public spaces in the State of Maryland.'

Its Board includes trustees of both the Hea
