The Freedom to Breathe Provisions in the Minnesota Clean Indoor Air Act were signed into law by Governor Tim Pawlenty on May 16, 2007, to protect employees and the public from the health hazards of secondhand smoke. The FTB provisions describe where smoking is prohibited, outline the responsibilities of employers and facility managers and list exemptions within the new MCIAA provisions that affect their workplaces and facilities.
