To Pass Smokefree Ordinances

Legislative Summary

SJR24 - (partial smokefree protections) - A Joint Resolution relating to smoking in public places—Session Adjourned

This resolution calls for a referendum vote on a weak smokefree law. The proposal would prohibit smoking in restaurants, bars, private clubs, and bingo, but it would still allow smoking in many non-hospitality workplaces, including public places with "incidental public access." It does not address electronic smoking devices or local control.
