MCER NO. 14-14:  PROPOSED DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES REGULATION
                               Smoking, Tobacco and Nicotine Prohibitions and Restrictions

SUMMARY: Proposed Executive Regulation 14-14 is established to coincide with changes to COMCOR No. 24-9 as a result of Montgomery County Bill 33-12 prohibiting smoking on all County owned and leased property and bus stops or stands;  Council Resolution 17-210 prohibiting smoking in indoor common spaces of multi-family residential property and within 25 feet of playgrounds on such property; and Montgomery County Bill 56-14 which places certain restrictions and controls on the use and sale of e-cigarettes and other electronic nicotine delivery devices.  Executive Regulation 60-91, Smoking Regulations and Restrictions, has not been updated since the last quadrennial review in 1992.  Public perception and acceptance of smoking in public places have evolved considerably over the past two decades resulting in the enactment of several State and Local laws to restrict and prohibit smoking in certain places.  Executive Regulation 60-91 was outdated and partially preempted by laws enacted since 1992.  Proposed Executive Regulation 14-14, Smoking, Tobacco and Nicotine Prohibitions and Restrictions will replace Executive Regulation 60-91.  The Department of Transportation and the Department of General Services participated in the development of this regulation
