SB-666 Would Exempt Casinos and Veteran Groups from CIA Regulations – ACT NOW!

dontgamble2-666SB-666 would offer exemptions from clean indoor air regulations to facilities across West
Virginia including veteran halls and casinos who have at least a 10% no smoking area and meet
prescribed ventilation requirements. Organizations covered under the provisions of SB-666
would receive a blanket exemption for clean indoor air regulations.

Passage of this legislation would:

– Dramatically weaken the ability of clean indoor air regulations in our communities to protect
our citizens from exposure to second hand smoke as they work, live and while enjoying

– Provide a path to exemption for facilities that are already smoke free and have been for
a considerable time exposing its workers, patrons and vendors to harmful and toxic
environmental tobacco smoke.

This legislation is being sought by powerful special interests, most notably the gambling
industry, who are attempting to to turn back the hands of time in order to squeeze profits through
exploitation of a dangerous addiction.


SB-666 has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee for consideration.
