Smoking in Cars

Rep. Michael Costello of Newburyport has filed An Act to Reduce Children's Exposure to Second-Hand Smoke, H2070. This proposed legislation would provide fines of $25-$100 for an adult found smoking in a car with small children. This joins legal actions in the past year that have seen tenants evicted for smoking, and an employee fired for smoking off the job. More information on these proceedings and other issues surrounding smoking in Massachusetts is available at Law About Smoking.
