Support smoke-free air

Dear [Decision Maker],

Representative Matt Baker has issued a co-sponsor memo on his intent to introduce legislation that will strengthen the Commonwealth's clean indoor air law. As a constituent and volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, I ask that you co-sponsor this legislation.



The workplace is a major source of secondhand smoke exposure for adults. Because of exemptions in Pennsylvania's law for businesses like casinos and some bars, hospitality workers in Pennsylvania are at a higher risk for secondhand smoke exposure.

Smoke-free policies reduce long-term risk of lung cancer and cardiovascular disease among workers and patrons alike. In addition, existing research strongly indicates that smoke-free laws are good for businesses, for workers, and for customers.

No one should have to choose between their job and their health.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
