Health and Business Groups Launch Ad Campaign About Need for Comprehensive Smoke-Free Law in Pennsylvania
Date:9/11/2007

HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A coalition of public health and business organizations today launched a newspaper and radio advertising campaign about the need for a comprehensive, statewide smoke-free workplace law that protects all Pennsylvanians from the serious health hazards of secondhand smoke.

The Pennsylvania House on July 16 voted 141 to 62 to approve comprehensive smoke-free legislation that covers restaurants, bars and casinos, and repeals pre-emptive language that prohibits most local governments from enacting smoke-free laws. But prior to the House vote -- and in stark contrast to that chamber's strong bill -- the Senate approved loophole-filled legislation that fails to protect all workers and would exempt casinos, some restaurants and bars, nursing homes and other adult-care centers, and even small home-based daycare centers. The Senate bill would also overturn existing local smoke- free laws and prohibit local governments from enacting stronger smoke-free laws in the future.

The next step in the legislative process would be the appointment of a House-Senate conference committee to negotiate the final legislation.

The new advertising campaign focuses on the serious health risks of secondhand smoke, the growing number of states that have enacted comprehensive smoke-free laws and the strong public and editorial support for a comprehensive law in Pennsylvania.

"What's Pennsylvania waiting for? With a comprehensive statewide smoke- free law, we can protect everyone's right to breathe clean air," the radio ad states.

The ad campaign is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Alliance to Control Tobacco (PACT), Pennsylvania Restaurant Association, American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, American Lung Association, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights, and Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. It is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. To view and listen to the ads, g
