By Chris Ulanowski

Oswego, NY – New York's clean indoor air act is three years old. The law put to an end smoking in all public gathering places in the state.
And on the anniversary, the State Health Department released a report said the law signficantly reduced exposure to second-hand smoke.
Russell Sciandra is the Director for the Center for a Tobacco Free New York. He also serves on the health department's Tobacco Advisory Board. WRVO's Chris Ulanowski asked him about the findings.
