GASP of Colorado (Group to Alleviate Smoking Pollution)
Ordinance Grade: 1
Some local laws have provisions that are stronger than the Colorado Clean Indoor Air Act and provide better protection from exposure to secondhand smoke at work and in public places. GASP of Colorado rates local laws compared to the state law on a scale of zero to five. The highest and best rating is a five (click here for an explanation of our rating system). Any stronger provisions in the state law take precedence over any weaker local provisions so the state law should be reviewed first through these links: smokefreecolorado.org or gaspforair.org.
This local law provides more protection from secondhand smoke than the state law in the following area(s):
Work Places: (3.1.4) county-owned work places only
Employee Retaliation Prohibited: (none)
