It's time to protect everyone’s right to breathe clean smoke-free air!

This year, secondhand smoke will cause nearly 42,000 deaths among nonsmokers, including 7,300 lung cancer deaths.

The evidence is clear:

  • There is no safe level of exposure to secondhand smoke.
  • Smoke-free laws reduce exposure to and protect people from secondhand smoke
  • Strong laws increase quitting among current smokers and reduce health care costs
     

I support giving all employees the right to work in a place where smoking isn't allowed.  No one should have to choose between their health and their job.
