No. 479

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 479, as introduced, Grayson. Family daycare homes: prohibition on smoking.
The California Child Day Care Facilities Act prohibits the smoking of a tobacco product in a private residence that is licensed as a family daycare home, both in the home and in those areas of the family daycare home where children are present. The act specifies that a city or county is not prohibited from enacting or enforcing an ordinance relating to smoking in a family daycare home if the ordinance is more stringent than the prohibition under the act.
This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to these provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
