California Ban Includes Tobacco Shop Smoking
Posted: March 18, 2011
The Cigar Rights of America is calling upon members to help fight a California Senate bill that, in an effort to tighten up the state's strict Smoke-Free Workplace law, includes a clause that would prohibit smoking in retail tobacco shops.
"[The legislation] is not just an assault on tobacco, but an assault on small business," said Glynn Loope, CRA's executive director.
Senate Bill 575 was introduced by Senator Mark DeSaulnier, D-Concord, with the intention of expanding the current workplace prohibition on smoking to include owner-operated business and eliminate the specified exemptions found in the current Smoke-Free Workplace law. The bill also seeks to clarify "confusion and hardship that can result from enactment or enforcement of disparate local workplace smoking restrictions."
Presently in California's workplaces, smoking is allowed in certain environments like tobacco shops, hotel lobbies, some bars and taverns, banquet rooms, warehouse facilities and employee break rooms. The bill would eliminate all these exemptions.
