Preemption Watch: Bill Tracking Summary

Publication Date: 2019-03-08

March 8, 2018

Please email ANR with any new smokefree bills—or anticipated bills that we should keep our eyes open for in 2019—as well as preemption attempts in your state and we will be sure to add them to Preemption Watch.

ANR tracks pending legislation relating to states' and territories' smokefree air policies as part of the continued fight to prevent preemptive legislation before it can be passed and to overturn preemption in states where it is already in place. Since even a strong bill can become preemptive at any point in the legislative process, it is very important to track even the best bills throughout the entire legislative session and keep a watchful eye out for all attempts to remove local control.

Below is a listing of bills that have been introduced in legislatures thus far. Please visit the www.protectlocalcontrol.org and click on the state of your choice to view the summary, text, and status of pending bills.


The new and pending legislative bills are classified below into eight categories to clearly delineate which bills will protect public health and should be supported from those that should be opposed because they do not effectively protect public health, weaken a strong law, or intend to preempt local control. New bills and changes in bill status since the last update appear in bold.

Weak: Bill includes ventilation, smoking rooms, or other key exemptions.
Weakens: Bill weakens a current strong 100% smokefree law.
