"RESOLVED: That the American Cancer Society opposes any preemption clauses that are intended to remove or restrict power and authority from a unit of local government or regulate clean indoor air and/or other tobacco control laws."

State Preemption of Local Tobacco Control Laws, March 1992

Utah

All workplaces, restaurants, taverns and private clubs in Utah are 100% smokefree. Restaurants went smokefree in January 1995. The Utah Indoor Clean Air Act was strengthened in 2006, which extended smokefree provisions to all non-hospitality workplaces and day-care centers on May 1, 2006, and to private clubs and taverns on January 1, 2009 after an unfortunately long phase-in period.

Read Utah's 100% smokefree law.

For more information about the law, visit Tobacco Free Utah or call 1-877-220-3466.
To report a violation, call your local health department.

Utah state law still "supersedes any ordinance enacted by a governing body of a political subdivision that restricts smoking and that is not essentially identical to the provisions of this chapter." Read more about current tobacco-related legislation in Utah.

Current tobacco-related statistics are available from the Centers for Disease Control's Tobacco Control State Highlights, 2010.
