Whether you are seeking to strengthen an existing smoke-free air law or create a completely new comprehensive smoke-free air law, you realize that the scope of what is commonly considered “model legislation” is constantly changing. To help individuals and organizations understand the most current recommendations for ordinances and state legislation, this webinar will focus on the Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights recently updated model ordinance. We will learn about several updated provisions as well as new trends that affect legislative deal breakers. Finally, the webinar will feature two state experiences—North Carolina, which took effect January 1, 2010; and South Carolina, which is creating statewide support by passing strong local ordinances before attempting a statewide comprehensive law.
Participants will be able to:
- Identify the updated or new provisions in model smoke-free air legislation
- Understand the rationale for current model
- Determine what provisions are essential (deal breakers) for effective, enforceable smoke-free air legislation
- Apply lessons learned from case studies to recognize challenges that need to be addressed in your state or community
