	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   SB 140, as amended, Leno. Electronic cigarettes.
   Existing law, the Stop Tobacco Access to Kids Enforcement (STAKE)
Act, prohibits a person from selling or otherwise furnishing tobacco
products to minors. Existing law permits enforcing agencies to assess
various civil penalties for violations of the STAKE Act. Existing
law makes it a crime to furnish tobacco products to minors. Existing
law also prohibits a person from selling or otherwise furnishing an
electronic cigarette to minors, and makes a violation punishable as
an infraction.
   This bill would define the term "smoking" for purposes of the
STAKE Act. The bill would also change the STAKE Act's definition of
tobacco products to include electronic devices, such as electronic
cigarettes, that deliver nicotine or other vaporized liquids, and
make furnishing such a tobacco product to a minor a misdemeanor.
    Existing law, the Cigarette and Tobacco Products Tax Law,
imposes a tax on the distribution of cigarettes and tobacco products
at specified rates, and defines tobacco products for those purposes.
 Existing law, the Cigarette and Tobacco Products Licensing Act
of 2003, requires the State Board of Equalization to administer a
statewide program to license manufacturers, importers, distributors,
wholesalers, and retailers of cigarettes and tobacco 
products.   products, as defined.  Under existing
law, a violation of this act is a misdemeanor.  Existing law
requires a retailer to have in place and maintain a license to engage
in the sale   of cigarettes or tobacco products, as
defined, and prescribes procedures for the issuance of and grounds
for revocation or suspension of a license. Existing law requires a
retailer who seeks to obtain a license to engage in the sale of 
 cigarettes and tobacco products to pay a one-time license fee
of $100, as specified. Existing law authorizes the State Board of
Equalization or a law enforcement agency that discovers that a
retailer or other person possesses, stores, owns, or has made a
retail sale of tobacco products on which a tax is due but has not
been paid to seize those products, and deems those products
forfeited, as specified. 
   This bill would  change that act's definition of tobacco
products to reflect   include in the definition of
tobacco products for the purposes of those provisions relating to
licenses for retailers  the STAKE Act's new definition of
tobacco products.  This bill would require a retailer that seeks
to sell a tobacco product that is not subject to imposition of a tax
under the Cigarette and Tobacco Products Tax Law to pay a one-time
license fee to engage in the sale of that product, as specified. The
bill would except the STAKE Act's new definition of tobacco products
from the provision authorizing seizure of tobacco products described
above. The bill would make these provisions operative on October 1,
2016.  
   Existing law makes it a crime for a person or entity to engage in
the business of selling cigarettes or tobacco products without a
valid license or after a license has been suspended or revoked, as
specified. Existing law also makes it a crime for a person to
continue selling or gifting cigarettes or tobacco products without a
valid license or after a notification of suspension or revocation, as
specified.  
   This bill would include in the definition of tobacco products for
the purposes of those provisions the STAKE Act's new definition of
tobacco products. The bill would make that provision operative on
October 1, 2016. 
   Existing law prohibits the smoking of cigarettes and other tobacco
products in a variety of specified areas. Under existing law, a
violation of some of these prohibitions is punishable as an
infraction.
   This bill would change the location restrictions for smoking
cigarettes and other tobacco products to reflect the STAKE Act's
definitions of smoking and tobacco products. The bill would make the
use of electronic cigarettes in some of these restricted locations a
violation punishable as an infraction.
   Existing law prohibits the smoking of medical marijuana in any
place where smoking is prohibited by law.
   This bill would declare that its provisions do not affect any law
or regulation regarding medical marijuana.
   By expanding the scope of a crime, the bill would impose a
state-mandated local program.
   The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local
agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the
state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that
reimbursement.
   This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this
act for a specified reason.
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program: yes.

concern. It is the intent of the Legislature in enacting this section
to prohibit the smoking of tobacco products in all (100 percent of)
enclosed places                                          of
employment in this state, as covered by this section, thereby
eliminating the need of local governments to enact workplace smoking
restrictions within their respective jurisdictions. It is further the
intent of the Legislature to create a uniform statewide standard to
restrict and prohibit the smoking of tobacco products in enclosed
places of employment, as specified in this section, in order to
reduce employee exposure to environmental tobacco smoke to a level
that will prevent anything other than insignificantly harmful effects
to exposed employees, and also to eliminate the confusion and
hardship that can result from enactment or enforcement of disparate
local workplace smoking restrictions. Notwithstanding any other

subdivision (d) or in which the smoking of tobacco products is not
regulated pursuant to subdivision (e) shall be subject to local
regulation of smoking of tobacco products.

enclosed space at a place of employment. "Enclosed space" includes
lobbies, lounges, waiting areas, elevators, stairwells, and restrooms
that are a structural part of the building and not specifically
defined in subdivision (d).
   (c) For purposes of this section, an employer who permits any
nonemployee access to his or her place of employment on a regular
basis has not acted knowingly or intentionally in violation of this
section if he or she has taken the following reasonable steps to
prevent smoking by a nonemployee:
   (1) Posted clear and prominent signs, as follows:
   (A) Where smoking is prohibited throughout the building or
structure, a sign stating "No smoking" shall be posted at each
entrance to the building or structure.
   (B) Where smoking is permitted in designated areas of the building
or structure, a sign stating "Smoking is prohibited except in
designated areas" shall be posted at each entrance to the building or
structure.
   (2) Has requested, when appropriate, that a nonemployee who is
smoking refrain from smoking in the enclosed workplace.
   For purposes of this subdivision, "reasonable steps" does not
include (A) the physical ejection of a nonemployee from the place of
employment or (B) any requirement for making a request to a
nonemployee to refrain from smoking, under circumstances involving a
risk of physical harm to the employer or any employee.

include any of the following:
   (1) Sixty-five percent of the guestroom accommodations in a hotel,
motel, or similar transient lodging establishment.
   (2) Areas of the lobby in a hotel, motel, or other similar
transient lodging establishment designated for smoking by the
establishment. An establishment may permit smoking in a designated
lobby area that does not exceed 25 percent of the total floor area of
the lobby or, if the total area of the lobby is 2,000 square feet or

constitute a uniform statewide standard for regulating the smoking of

supersede and render unnecessary the local enactment or enforcement
of local ordinances regulating the smoking of tobacco products in
enclosed places of employment. Insofar as the smoking prohibition set
forth in this section is applicable to all (100-percent) places of

degree of coverage, the practical effect of this section is to
eliminate the need of local governments to enact enclosed workplace
smoking restrictions within their respective jurisdictions.

prohibiting smoking of tobacco products in an enclosed place of
employment for any reason.

products in enclosed places of employment by local governments shall

(100-percent) smoking prohibition provided for in this section
remains in effect. In the event this section is repealed or modified
by subsequent legislative or judicial action so that the
(100-percent) smoking prohibition is no longer applicable to all
enclosed places of employment in California, local governments shall
have the full right and authority to enforce previously enacted, and
to enact and enforce new, restrictions on the smoking of tobacco
products in enclosed places of employment within their jurisdictions,
including a complete prohibition of smoking. Notwithstanding any
other provision of this section, any area not defined as a "place of
employment" or in which smoking is not regulated pursuant to
subdivision (d) or (e), shall be subject to local regulation of
smoking of tobacco products.
   (j) Any violation of the prohibition set forth in subdivision (b)
is an infraction, punishable by a fine not to exceed one hundred
dollars ($100) for a first violation, two hundred dollars ($200) for
a second violation within one year, and five hundred dollars ($500)
for a third and for each subsequent violation within one year. This
subdivision shall be enforced by local law enforcement agencies,
including, but not limited to, local health departments, as
determined by the local governing body.
   (k) Notwithstanding Section 6309, the division shall not be
required to respond to any complaint regarding the smoking of tobacco
products in an enclosed space at a place of employment, unless the
employer has been found guilty pursuant to subdivision (j) of a third
violation of subdivision (b) within the previous year.
   (  l  ) If any provision of this act or the application
thereof to any person or circumstances is held invalid, that
invalidity shall not affect other provisions or applications of the
act that can be given effect without the invalid provision or
application, and to this end the provisions of this act are
severable.
