New Michigan's Smoking Restriction

Michigan's Smoke-Free Air Law

Beginning May 1, 2010, smoking is prohibited in most public places in Michigan. The law will cover any
workplace and any food service establishment. This law covers public places, including, but not limited to,
restaurants, bars, shopping malls, bowling alleys, concert halls, arenas, museums, mechanic shops,
health facilities, nursing homes, education facilities, and child care centers.

The Michigan legislature passed the Dr. Ron Davis Smoke-Free Air Law on December 10, 2009 to
preserve and improve the health, comfort, and environment of the people of the state by limiting
exposure to secondhand smoke.

The Smoke-Free Air Act will not serve as the only smoke free law in the state, but it does set forth
the essential requirements for indoor workplaces and public places where smoking is regulated and
these minimum standards apply state-wide. The statewide law does the following:
(1) establishes where people can smoke and where they can't if the local community is not currently
covered by any city or county law; and (2) ensures that any provision that are weaker in regional law,
compared to the state law, are now made at least as strong as the statewide law.
Cigar bars, tobacco specified retail stores, and the gaming floors of casinos may be granted exemptions
from the smoke free law.

The public health and well being of workers and customers alike is the best reason for state government
to ensure smoke-free businesses, including restaurants and bars. A clean air free from tobacco smoke
is good for Michigan residents, workers and visitors - and now - Michigan is serving to smoke free air.
