Issue 5 - Prohibit Smoking

Postby Boomn4x4 » Tue Oct 31, 2006 10:49 am

The proposed law would:

Prohibit smoking in public places and places of employment;
Exempt from the smoking restrictions certain locations, including private residences (except during the hours that the residence operates as a place of business involving non-residents of the private residence), designated smoking rooms in hotels, motels, and other lodging facilities; designated smoking areas for nursing home residents; retail tobacco stores, outdoor patios, private clubs, and family-owned and operated places of business;
Authorize a uniform statewide minimum standard to protect workers and the public from secondhand tobacco smoke;
Allow for the declaration of an establishment, facility, or outdoor area as nonsmoking;
Require the posting of “No Smoking” signs, and the removal of all ashtrays and similar receptacles from any area where smoking is prohibited;
Specify the duties of the department of health to enforce the smoking restrictions
Create in the state treasury the “smoke free indoor air fund;”
Provide for the enforcement of the smoking restrictions and for the imposition of civil fines upon anyone who violates the smoking restrictions.
I love my job, it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.
