Minnesota Freedom to Breathe Act of 2007
The Law - Highlights of the Act
In 1975, Minnesota became the first state to limit smoking in indoor workplaces, with the exception of bars.

The legislation was passed by a bipartisan majority of lawmakers and was signed by Governor Pawlenty on May 16, 2007. The law took effect on October 1, 2007.
