Utah



In the state of Utah, about 80 % of people live along the Wasatch Front, which area includes the cities of
Salt Lake City and Ogden. In contrast, vast expanses of the state are nearly uninhabited. The name of Utah
is derived from the Indian language, meaning ' people of the mountains'. Utah is known for being one of
the most religiously homogeneous states, which greatly influences Utah culture and daily life.

Bryce Canyon National Park is located in southwestern Uta. Despite the name of Bryce Canyon, this is not
actually a canyon, but rather a giant natural amphitheater created by erosion.

Utah Clean Air Act


The Wasatch Range, which forms the mountain wall in the east of Salt Lake Valley urban area,
stretches mountains over for 260 kms at the Utah and Idaho border.


To make the air clear from smoking in Utah's bars and restaurants, Governor Huntsman signed an update
to the Utah Clean Air Act in March 2006. It will eventually make every bar, restaurant, private club and
fraternal organization, 'clean air zone'. All other bars, private clubs, and taverns will be smoke-free in 2009.

As President of the Coalition for Tobacco Free Utah, we recognize the significant harms of secondhand smoke.
It is a major cause of negative health effects in our country, and is not just a problem in enclosed facilities.
According to recent scientific studies, levels of tobacco smoke in outdoor public places can be as high as
those found in indoor facilities. The Surgeon General of the United States recently pointed out that there is
no safe level of ingestion of smoke and just five minutes exposure can cause negative health effects.

The passing of the ordinance banning smoking in public areas of Salt Lake City not only protect the health
of those who use the facilities, but also help eliminate the perception of young people that tobacco use is
normal, which will likely decrease the probability that they will ultimately take up smoking.

Apartment and condominium residents, managers, and owners can now breathe easier. The Utah Smoke-
Free Apartment and Condominium Guide, an online resource, promotes the housing free from tobacco smoke,
in the State of Utah. Nationally, 50,000 people die each year as consequent on secondhand smoke (SHS)
exposure. Additionally, hundreds of thousands of people exposed to it suffer various other illnesses, such
as asthma and bronchitis.


ユタ州はアイダホ、ワイオミング、コロラド、ネバタ、アリゾナ州に囲まれており、州都でで最大の都市はソルト
レイクシティである。モルモン教徒によって開拓された州であり、信仰の厚い人が多い。敬虔で穏やかな人々が
培ってきた風土は、治安のよい州、全米第一の評価に表れている。1869年に岩倉具視を団長とする日本使節団が
訪れた史実がある。太平洋戦争中の日系人の強制収容に反対したことで知られ、親日的な土地である。飲酒や喫煙
する者は少ない。雨と風は長い年月をかけて柔らかい砂岩を浸食しさまざまな自然の造形物を作り出している。

筆者は1962年9月にブライスキャニオン国立公園を自分の車で訪れているが、岩山の断崖から見る、赤茶けた色を
した無数の岩の塔が谷底からそそり立つ姿は圧巻である。サンライズサンセットインスピレーションポイントから
の朝夕、日を浴びて赤茶色に輝く壮大な光景は地球の肌の輝きでもある。

ユタ州のレストラン、カフェ、バーは全面禁煙 すでに1995年にユタ州ではレストランでの喫煙を禁止していた。
1994年にはカリフォるニア州で職場、レストランでの禁煙規制が実施に次ぐ速い時期での喫煙規制措置である。
この1995年の室内空気清浄法(インドア・クリーン・エア・アクト)は2006年に見直され、2009年1月からバー、
居酒屋での全面禁煙が施行される。
