Utah Clean Air Act


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
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.
