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.
