On November 7, 2006 Question 5, the Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act (NCIAA) was passed by a majority of Nevada voters.  The Act was initiated to protect the public from secondhand smoke.  The NCIAA became effective December 8, 2006 and prohibits smoking of tobacco products in most public places and indoor places of employment.  The Southern Nevada Health District is charged with enforcement of the Act.  For more information and answers to frequently asked questions regarding the NCIAA, please visit the Southern Nevada Health District's website, www.southernnevadahealthdistrict.
