Utah Governor Signs Clean Indoor Air Act Into Law
Utah to become nation's 14th smokefree workplace state/district/commonwealth
Parts excerpted from KSL TV, 3/16/06
Utah Governor Jon Huntsman signed an update to the Utah Clean Air Act this morning. It will eventually make every bar, restaurant, private club and fraternal organization smokefree.
It clears the air in upscale private club-restaurants starting next year. All other bars, private clubs, and taverns will be smokefree in 2009.
Utah joins California, Delaware, New York, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Montana, Vermont, Washington, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, and Washington DC-- all of which have passed comprehensive smokefree workplace legislation for workers, including restaurant and bar workers.
