Word on the Street: Not hiring smokersPosted: Updated:
A county board of supervisors in Arizona is proposing a policy that would refuse the hiring of smokers.

According to reports, the decision would save the county more than $1 million in health care costs every year. The board is set to vote on the proposal next week.
