LOS ANGELES (CBS) — California landlords may soon be able to ban smoking on their properties, including rental units, if a new bill becomes law.
Senate Bill 332 was unanimously approved by the state senate Monday. The bill is sponsored by democratic Sen. Alex Padilla of Los Angeles.
Padilla says SB332 is meant to protect families from second-hand smoke, which can travel between units through open windows and doors, ventilation systems and crawl spaces.
SB332 must be signed by Gov. Jerry Brown before it becomes law.
