RE: SB 3004 Relating to Health
Attention: Chairs: Rosalyn Baker, Kai Kahele, and Jill Tokuda; Vice Chairs: Jill Tokuda, Donna Mercado Kim and Kalani English and Members of the respective Committees
The University of Hawaii Professional Assembly (UHPA) opposes SB 3004 relating to a statutory prohibition on smoking, tobacco use and the use of electronic smoking devices by any person on the premises of the University of Hawaiʻi. The University already has the authority and the ability to prohibit smoking and the use of tobacco and electronic smoking devices as reference on page 2, line 13 regarding the UH executive policy E10.102. The purpose of this bill is already being executed by the University.
UHPA opposes the passage of SB 3004.
