To Pass Smokefree Ordinances

Legislative Summary

HB2343 - (workplaces, restaurants and bars) - An Act relating to smoking - Session Adjourned

This bill amends the current state law to remove numerous workplace exemptions, which would make enclosed public places and workplaces smokefree, including restaurants and bars. The bill would not remove Oklahoma's strong preemption.

  • Preemptive Action


  • Anti-Preemptive Clause


EXEMPTIONS: Smoking is allowed in workplaces in private homes except for day care during the hours of operation; medical research or treatment facilities; outdoor dining areas of restaurants; designated rooms in nursing home rooms; schools during non-school hours.
