Clean Indoor Air Act | Environmental

The Nebraska Clean Indoor Air Act of 2008 required indoor workplaces in Nebraska to be smoke-free as of June 1, 2009. The purpose of the Act is to protect the public health and welfare by prohibiting smoking in public places and places of employment.

The Act eliminates smoking in enclosed indoor workspaces including restaurants, bars, keno establishments, other workplaces (retail/office space, manufacturing, etc.) and indoor public places.

SWNPHD has contracted with the State of Nebraska to follow up violations of the Act. If you would like to file a complaint or need more information, contact our environmental staff at
