Nevada bill to partially ban candles and air fresheners introducedMarch 15th, 2011 - 10:52 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Nevada, Mar 15 (THAINIDAN NEWS) Lawmakers in Nevada have introduced a bill that would restrict air fresheners and burning of candles in the state. If the bill is approved it could significantly affect the way of life of the citizens in the state.
The new measure according to proponents is meant to protect people who have some sort of sensitivity to some kinds of fragrances. The bill was introduced in the state’s Senate on Monday by Las Vegas Democratic Rep Paul Aizley.
People with sensitivity to chemicals and fragrances could develop migraines and even in extreme cases asthma when they are exposed to certain kinds of fragrances and chemicals.
The bill is not without its critics. Opponents claim that the new bill could clash with the rights of some people in the state. Burning candles and other fragrances are integral parts of some religion. Catholics would be required to have their Mass in the state without burning incense and that could be the cause of potential legal battle.
The new bill if it is approved would also place restrictions on pesticides as well. The introduction of the bill might be the end of candle-lit dinner in the state as well.
