The Board is also proposing to keep smoke from coming into buildings by preventing people from smoking within 30-feet of any opening to a public building, including entryways, windows or ventilation systems. The rule change is based on Montana’s Clean Indoor Air Act (CIAA) to protect the public from the harmful effects of secondhand smoke, including vapor from e-cigarettes ชุดผ้าปูที่นอน ราคาถูก and other electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS). The Montana CIAA already prohibits smoking in enclosed public spaces. The RiverStone Board of Health, as Yellowstone County’s public health governing body, sets public health policy for Yellowstone County and has broad authority to develop and implement local rules to improve public health. The Board of Health and its policy subcommittee have worked for a year to draft the new rule. Like Montana’s CIAA, the new rule balances an individual’s personal choice to smoke against the right of non-smokers to breathe smoke-free air. The CIAA protects against exposure to secondhand smoke and to third-hand smoke, which is the residual nicotine and other chemicals left on indoor surfaces by tobacco smoke. Studies show that third-hand smoke clings to hair, skin, clothes, bedding and other surfaces. More than 41,200 adults die every year from secondhand smoke in the United States and even brief exposures to secondhand smoke increase the risk of a heart attack or other serious heart problems. The Board of Health will accept comment on this proposed rule and will hold a public hearing on the proposed rule Wednesday, June 21, starting at 5 p.m.

REUTERS/Philippe Wojazer By Ingrid Melander and Maya Nikolaeva | PARIS PARIS Voters turned out in low numbers on Sunday in the second round of France's parliamentary election, where President Emmanuel Macron is expected to win a landslide majority that should allow him to embark on far-reaching pro-business reforms. The vote comes just a month after the 39-year-old former banker became the youngest head of state in modern French history, promising to clean up French politics and revive the euro zone's second-biggest economy. Macron's centrist Republic on the Move (LREM) party is little more than a year old, yet pollsters project it will win as many as 75 to 80 percent of the seats in the 577-seat lower house. Turnout, though, was on course for a record low, a sign of voter fatigue after seven months of campaigning and voting - and also of disillusionment and anger with politics that could eventually complicate Macron's reform drive. Interior Ministry data showed turnout reached 17.75 percent by 1200 (1000 GMT), its lowest ever at that time of day for a second round of parliamentary elections since at least 1997. "People know it's already a done deal," Alex Mpoy, a 38-year-old security guard told Reuters TV, echoing the apathy of many voters who intend to abstain. Macron cast his vote early in the morning in the seaside resort of Le Touquet before flying to a ceremony outside Paris to mark the anniversary of Charles de Gaulle's 1940 appeal for French resistance to Nazi Germany's occupation. Polls show Macron is on course to win the biggest parliamentary majority since de Gaulle's own conservatives in 1968. Many of Macron's lawmakers will be political novices, something which will change the face of parliament at the expense of the conservative and socialist parties that have ruled France for decades.
