HARRISBURG – Legislation is being introduced that would end smoking in PA casinos, bars, and private clubs. House Bill 1657 would:eliminate loopholes in the Clean Indoor Air Act that leave workers in casinos, bars, and private clubs exposed to secondhand smoke, expand the definition of smoking to add e-cigarettes to combat the rise in vaping-related illnesses, and give localities the ability to enact smoke-free ordinances that are more protective than state law. Bill sponsor, Allegheny County Rep. Dan Frankel said workers should not have to sacrifice their health for a paycheck, but the data shows that’s what’s happening. The bill is before the PA House Health Committee and a companion bill is before the state Senate.
