MMWR Introduction

The March 18, 2005, issue of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) contains a report entitled, “Preemptive State Smoke-Free Indoor Air Laws—United States, 1999–2004."

The report finds that preemption provisions in state smoke-free indoor air laws remain common and almost no progress is being made toward the 2010 goal of eliminating all preemptive state smoke-free indoor air laws.
