Description
Arizona Non-Smoker Protection Committee
The Arizona Non-Smoker Protection Act creates a balanced, reasonable, consistent, statewide non-smoking law, protecting minors and preserving private property rights. The Act will not raise taxes or create new government programs. The Act would prohibit smoking in enclosed public places and places of employment, except bars and tobacco shops. Minors are not permitted in any part of a bar or tobacco shop that permits smoking. Signs must notify patrons and employees where smoking is permitted. If part of a larger business, the bars and tobacco shops must be separated by floor to ceiling partitions and separate ventilation systems.


Currently, state statutes provide that smoking tobacco is prohibited in certain areas and most state buildings. A person who smokes where smoking is prohibited is guilty of a petty offense. Several cities and towns also have restrictions on smoking in public places.

Proposition 206 would prohibit smoking in all public places and places of employment, except as provided by the proposition. These exceptions include:
1. Bars, including parts of restaurants, hotels and other establishments that sell alcoholic beverages and are physically separated with a separate ventilation system.
2. Retail tobacco stores that are physically separated and independently ventilated.
3. Veterans and fraternal clubs when they are not open to the public.
4. Hotel rooms designated as smoking rooms.
5.
