Trigger Approaches

Opposition groups have promoted trigger approaches as an alternative strategy to smokefree laws. In practice, it is merely an ill-conceived strategy designed to delay smokefree protection indefinitely. Trigger approaches are set up where an ordinance passes in one community, but doesn't take effect until a certain number of neighboring communities have passed similar laws. This is just another tactic to derail smokefree protections. Don't be fooled into agreeing to a trigger approach in your town. For more information on these approaches, please contact us.
