Analysis of the ADA's implications for environmental tobacco smoke policy

The Foundation's Tobacco Policy Research and Evaluation Program was designed to provide support for research and evaluation projects that will produce policy relevant information about ways to reduce tobacco use in the U.S., especially among children and youth.The purpose of this project is to analyze the potential of individuals whose disabilities require smoke-free environments to obtain such environments at work, in public buildings and in places of public accommodation. Specifically, the researchers will: (1) analyze the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and its predecessor statute, the ADA's legislative history and regulations promulgated by the federal agencies responsible for its enforcement; (2) analyze all cases both decided and pending concerning environmental tobacco smoke and the ADA; (3) collect and analyze existing state laws and compare them to the ADA; and (4) disseminate the results of their analyses to academia and policy audiences.
