Introduction: Thousands of communities across the country and more than two dozen states have passed various forms of clean indoor air laws that restrict or ban smoking in public places to reduce the harmful effect of secondhand smoke exposure. These new measures have prompted interest in learning more about whether they lead to health improvements and, also, how they may adversely affect certain businesses that have historically allowed smoking, such as hotels, bars, and restaurants. Since its inception, SAPRP has funded 25 studies addressing issues around policies targeting smoking in various places including worksites, restaurants, other public places.
