Senate Amendment 1 to House Bill 118
152nd General Assembly (Present)
House Bill No. 118 prohibits smoking in a vehicle if a person is not the sole occupant of the vehicle and a person in the vehicle is under 18 years of age. This Amendment lowers that age to under 16 years. This Amendment also rewrites House Amendment No. 1 to HB 118. Like HA 1 to HB 118, this Amendment revises the existing exceptions to the Clean Indoor Air Act under § 2904 of Title 16 so that these exceptions do not apply when a passenger in the vehicle is under the age when the restriction under § 2909 of Title 16 applies. In addition, this Amendment makes technical corrections to § 2904 to conform existing law to the standards of the Delaware Legislative Drafting Manual, including all of the following: 1. Uses standard language to introduce and explain the applicability of the paragraphs. 2. Corrects punctuation at the end of each paragraph and adds Oxford commas to lists within paragraphs. 3. Revises the exceptions under § 2904(1) into a list for clarity. 4. Corrects the spelling of the word “fundraising”.
