Third-Hand Smoke Ban In New York

(New York, NY) -- A bill aimed at snuffing out third-hand smoke awaits Governor Cuomo's signature.

It would prohibit smoking in rooms or homes used for licensed daycare, even when the children aren't there. Both the State Senate and Assembly passed the bill last month citing research showing residue can be ingested by breathing or touching for months after smoking stops. Opponents say it's an unconstitutional intrusion particularly for homes.
