On February 21, 2013, the California legislature proposed a state law that, if enacted, would prohibit smoking inside the dwelling units of those communities that contain 2 or more units with one or more shared walls, floors, ceilings, or ventilation systems.. The proposed legislation, AB 746, can be found at: http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/pub/13-14/bill/asm/ab_0701-0750/ab_746_bill_20130221_introduced.htm
If this statute is adopted as currently proposed, California will be the first state in the country to ban smoking within the units of multi-family residential dwellings.
Stay tuned to find out whether or not this law is enacted.
