To Pass Smokefree Ordinances

Legislative Summary

HB2742 - (preemptive bar and attached bar exemption) - A bill relating to smoking - Session Adjourned

This bill weakens the existing smokefree law by establishing a smoking permit program that allows smoking in bars and bar areas of restaurants, either in the entire establishment or in separately or partially enclosed areas. This bill is also preemptive as it prohibits local laws from restricting smoking within establishments with a valid smoking permit.
