New York State Assemblymember Linda B. Rosenthal has introduced a bill to extend the protections of New York State’s Clean Indoor Air Act to include e-cigarettes.
The Clean Indoor Air Act protects New Yorkers against exposure to second-hand smoke from traditional tobacco products in office buildings, restaurants, bars and other public spaces.
E-cigarettes have exploded in popularity since they first hit the scene several years ago.
“Though we are still learning about e-cigarettes, what we do know should give us pause,” said Rosenthal.
“It’s especially critical that we take action to regulate e-cigarettes given the explosion in use among young people. E-cigarettes are quickly becoming the gateway for young people into a life of smoking. This must stop.”
More than 60% of all counties in New York State have already passed local laws to ban the practice.
“New York must not take a wait and see approach. It’s critical that the state take broad action to shield the public from the unwanted intrusion of e-cigarette vapor,” said Assemblymember Linda B. Rosenthal. “The patchwork of legislation that currently exists makes enforcement more difficult and leaves more 40% of the state’s residents in danger.”
