The Nevada Clean Indoor Act was passed by a majority of Nevada voters on November 7, 2006.
The passage of this measure provided for substantial changes to Nevada smoking laws and protects children and adults from secondhand smoke in most public places and indoor places of employment. The Act took effect on December 8, 2006.
During the 2011 legislative session lawmakers passed Assembly Bill 571 which made changes to the voter-approved Act.
Based on these revisions to the statute, stand-alone bars, taverns and saloons in which patrons under 21 years of age are prohibited from entering, may allow smoking.
