Date:6/23/2008

DES MOINES, Iowa, June 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The countdown is on for the Iowa Smokefree Air Act. To help with the July 1, 2008, implementation of the law, the American Lung Association (ALA) is offering assistance and materials to Iowa businesses. ALA has printed a limited number of window clings for businesses to post that meet the law requirements. These are provided free of charge.

This law requires that signs be posted at every entrance to a public place and place of employment where smoking is not allowed, and at every entrance to outdoor areas where smoking is not allowed. Signs must also be posted in public vehicles and in vehicles owned, leased or provided by an employer. Signs are required to be at least 24 square inches in size and the type must be in a legible font.

The signs must clearly display three items: (1) International "no smoking" symbol OR the words "No Smoking;" (2) Smokefree Air Act Web site, http://www.IowaSmokefreeAir.gov; and (3) Smokefree Air Act Helpline 1-888-944-2247.

Additionally, the American Lung Association has created a piece that will give businesses a better understanding about what is and is not included in the law. On the back of the card are Iowa resources to help those interested in quitting.

Businesses can order window clings and/or information cards by calling 877.925.8647 or online http://www.lungia.org.

ALA is also partnering with the Iowa Consortium for Comprehensive Cancer Control and CAFE Iowa CAN to host free statewide smoke-free law workshops for Iowa businesses. These workshops will include presentations on the draft administrative rules and enforcement information and on how to keep your business in compliance with the law.
