Support Clean Indoor Air
Dear [Decision Maker],
As your constituent, I am asking you to support comprehensive clean indoor air for all workplaces including bars and casinos. Exposure to secondhand smoke causes many of the same tobacco-related diseases and premature death as active smoking, including heart disease, stroke and cancer. There is no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke.
All Pennsylvanians should have the right to breathe smoke-free air in their workplace. Under the current law some businesses are exempt, leaving thousands of workers in our state without protection from secondhand smoke. Smoke-free policies reduce long-term risk of lung cancer and cardiovascular disease among workers and patrons alike. 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. I hope I can count on you to support comprehensive clean indoor air in the commonwealth.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
