Ensuring Community Rights
To Pass Smokefree Ordinances

Legislative Summary

SB213 - (possibly preemptive) - A bill concerning labor and safety - Signed by the Governor

This bill states that a county or municipality may not require an employer to provide to an employee a benefit; a term of employment; a working condition; or an attendance or leave policy; that exceeds the requirements of federal or state law, rules, or regulations. This bill potentially may be preemptive of local smokefree laws because there is concern that “a working condition” could mean requiring a smokefree environment.
