MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 5, 2017 09:36 AM
From: Representative Thomas P. Murt
To: All House members
Subject: Amending the Clean Indoor Air Act to Prohibit Smoking in Casinos (Prior HB 996)
 
I plan to reintroduce legislation that amends the Clean Indoor Air Act (CIAA) to prohibit smoking in casinos.

As you know, in 2008 Pennsylvania implemented the CIAA, a major step forward in Pennsylvania, by removing secondhand smoke in about 95% of workplaces and public areas in this Commonwealth.

Under the current law, designated areas of the gaming floor of casinos are included in the exceptions. However, even with the current provisions in the law that limit smoking to certain areas of the gaming floor and the use of air filtration systems in these facilities, non-smokers are still exposed to second hand smoke. In addition, this exception leaves employees unprotected from secondhand smoke.

Introduced as HB810
