SPONSORS OF BILL:

See Joint Favorable Report from Aging

REASONS FOR BILL:

See Joint Favorable Report from Aging

SUBSTITUTE LANGUAGE:

The substitute language strikes Section 3 of this bill because it is seen as a step backwards in the extensive discussions concerning smoking in building and restaurants. It will also be placing a costly burden on municipalities to build a climate controlled designated smoke area. It also includes the replacement of senior centers to senior center membership in line 7 of Section 1.
