Governor Relaxes Smoking Ban
(Carson City, NV) — Nevada bars can now serve food and allow smoking for customers. Governor Brian Sandoval has signed Assembly Bill 571 into law, the first change to the Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act since voters approved it five years ago. The measure bans people under 21 from taverns where food and smoking are allowed.
Bar owners claimed the state law led to hardship for the industry. Health groups were not successful in blocking the bill during this year’s Legislature.
