Americans for Nonsmokers’ Rights’ model laws have been developed over 40 years, based on our experience in the field and our in-house legal expertise, along with, more recently, the legal advice of partners such as the Public Health Law Center. ANR models are intended to be as comprehensive as possible, to provide the greatest protection possible to nonsmokers. The models are updated periodically (every one to two years) in light of current trends, research developments, and changes to the legal landscape. Updates are suggested internally, then routed to all Policy staff for review and discussion. Once internal consensus is achieved, updates are forwarded to partners for feedback, then finalized.
