Clean Indoor Air Regulations

A Regulation Eliminating Smoking in Public Places and Places of Employment.

Sec. 1000. Title

This article shall be known as the Harrison County Clean Indoor Air Regulation of 2008.

Sec. 1001. Findings and Purpose

The United States Surgeon General and numerous other credible authorities and medical researchers have determined:

 (A) That involuntary inhalation of secondhand or tobacco smoke can cause or contribute to numerous serious health problems and diseases, including heart disease, cancer, respiratory illness, and acute episodes of decreased respiratory function, including broncho-constriction and broncho-spasm in healthy nonsmokers.

 (B) That the presence of secondary tobacco smoke is a major contributor to indoor air pollution.

 (C) That children, elderly people and individuals with cardiovascular and/or respiratory diseases are at increased risk.

 (D) That the simple separation of smokers and nonsmokers within the same airspace may reduce, but does not eliminate the exposure of nonsmokers to environmental tobacco smoke. Smoking bans remain the most viable and cost-effective method of protecting patrons. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has classified secondhand smoke as a Group A Carcinogen, known to cause cancer in humans.
