AS 18.35.320. Designation of Smoking Sections.

(a) A person in charge of an indoor place or vehicle of public transportation described in AS 18.35.300 may designate portions of the place or vehicle as smoking sections. For purposes of this section, "vehicle of public transportation" does not include a taxicab or limousine for hire, and "indoor place" does not include an elevator.

(b) The person who chairs the Rules Committee in a house of the legislature is responsible for the designation of smoking sections under this section in the legislative offices, committee rooms, and other places under the control of that house. The authority to designate a smoking section may not be used to impede the work of a conference committee.

(c) A person who designates a smoking section under this section shall make reasonable accommodations to protect the health of the nonsmokers who use the place or vehicle by separation, partition, or ventilation that ensures that nonsmokers in the place or vehicle are not subject to the active by-products of smoke from smokers in the place or vehicle.

(d) Notwithstanding any other provision in this chapter, a smoking section may not be designated under this section for students on the grounds of or in an elementary or secondary school, indoors or outdoors.
