Do you want a smokefree Pennsylvania?
Publication Date: 2007-06-21
Are you sick of secondhand smoke in Pennsylvania?
Clean air is in sight. Lawmakers are now debating long-overdue legislation that would clear the air in all Pennsylvania workplaces.
Senate Bill 246 is a strong smokefree bill, but it's under Big Tobacco attack. The state Senate is considering numerous Big Tobacco loopholes that would keep bars, casinos and many other Pennsylvania workplaces SMOKE-FILLED.
We need your help TODAY to support a STRONG bill with no exemptions! EVERYONE needs to breathe and deserves a smokefree workplace. Service industry worker health should not be sacrificed for Big Tobacco's profit.
