Minnesota Clean Indoor Air Act & Freedom To Breathe

In 2007, the Minnesota Clean Indoor Air Act (MCIAA) was amended to prohibit smoking in virtually all indoor public places and indoor places of employment.  These new provisions were referred to as "Freedom to Breathe" and sought to protect employees and the public from the health hazards of secondhand smoke.

More than 50,000 people die each year from the effects of secondhand smoke and legislation like this will continue to lower that number.  Our fight isn't over and we thank you for your continued support to reduce smoking rates and exposure to secondhand smoke.
