Sen. Gloor Cosponsors Bill That Seeks to Make In-Home Daycares Smoke Free

Posted: Updated:

Omaha Sen. Rick Kolowski introduced a bill to lawmakers Wednesday that would require all daycares and their vehicles to be smoke free.

The current law only requires commercial daycares to keep their building and vehicles smoke free. In-home daycares allow smoking as long as it is not in the part of the building where the daycare is licensed to operate.

Kolowski says, "This loophole allows smoking in a kitchen, dining room, bathroom, bedroom or any other room that isn't designated as part of the daycare area."

He adds that, "According to Nebraska Health and Human Services, over 60 percent of all daycares in the state are in-home businesses."

LB630 is co-sponsored by Sens. Kathy Campbell of Lincoln, Mike Gloor of Grand Island and Sara Howard of Omaha.
