The Smoke Free Colorado Bill

House Bill 1175, the Colorado Clean Indoor Air Act of 2006, passed out of House Health and Human Services Committee and on to the House with an exemption for casinos.

The Bill would ban smoking in restaurants, bars, and most indoor workplaces and public places. It would also set a 15-foot perimeter outside business doors where smoking would be prohibited.
