Iowa Smokefree Air Act

In the spring of 2008, Iowa lawmakers passed legislation to protect employees and the general
public. The Smokefree Air Act prohibits smoking in most public places and enclosed areas
within places of employment, as well as some outdoor areas.

The law applies to: restaurants, bars, outdoor entertainment events and amphitheaters. It also
covers places of employment such as office buildings, health care facilities, and child care
facilities. Smoking is allowed on the gaming floor of a licensed casino, as well as designated
hotel and motel rooms.

Duties of Proprietors

Proprietors are required to take certain actions in order to comply with the Smokefree Air Act.
Employers have a responsibility to inform all current employees and all prospective employees
upon application for employment about the requirements of the law. All ashtrays must be removed
from areas where smoking is prohibited.

No-smoking signs which meet the requirements of the law must be clearly posted at all entrances
to areas where smoking is prohibited. This includes the designated seating areas of outdoor
entertainment venues. A proprietor must inform any individual smoking in a place where smoking
is prohibited that the individual is violating the Smokefree Air Act. If the person refuses to
stop smoking, the proprietor may discontinue service to that person.
