Senate OKs measure to ban smoking in apartments

SACRAMENTO — Already barred from lighting up in restaurants, theaters and the office, Californians may also be banned from smoking in their apartments under a proposal passed by the state Senate on Thursday. The measure would allow landlords to prohibit smoking in apartment buildings they own to protect nonsmoking tenants from secondhand smoke. The legislation is among a slew of worker protection and consumer protection bills that advanced this week in the state Legislature, including bids to restrict lead in lipstick and toys, require nutritional information on restaurant menus, protect workers from discipline for using marijuana for medical purposes and bar dentists from arranging credit for patients while they are under the influence of anesthesia.
