Legislative Summary

SB1070 - (partial preemption repeal) - An act relating to the Florida Clean Indoor Air Act - Died; Session Adjourned

This bill would amend the current preemption of local control of smokefree air issues. Currently, Florida’s preemption is interpreted as prohibiting local governments from adopting smokefree policies in both indoor and outdoor locations. This bill amends the law so that preemption would apply only to policies addressing indoor smoking, which would permit local governments to adopt smokefree policies for outdoor areas.
