Support for Smokefree Casinos in Iowa

A letter to the editor in the Des Moines Register stated that, “Seven years after Iowa’s smoke-free-air law went into effect exempting gaming floors, the state continues to gamble with the health of those who work in and patronize casinos.” The author described the health hazards of secondhand smoke exposure and closed by stating, “It’s time for lawmakers to make Iowa’s casinos completely smoke-free. We all deserve the right to breathe smoke-free air.”
