The Iowa Department of Public Health has scheduled a series of public hearings on the implementation of Iowa’s Smokefree Air Act on August 20, 21 and 22 at sites across Iowa (click here for the full listing). 

Iowa’s public smoking ban took effect on July 1, 2008 but was implemented with an expedited rules process.   The formal rules process is now underway and Iowans are encouraged to participate in the public hearings or provide written comments at www.IowaSmokefreeAir.gov.  The public comment period ends on September 30.
