FIRE SAFETY STANDARDS FOR CIGARETTES AND LITTLE CIGARS. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Requires State Fire Marshall to adopt rules and regulations establishing fire safety performance standards for cigarettes and little cigars. Provides these standards are to be based on studies conducted in conjunction with the Bureau of Home Furnishings. Requires these studies be supported entirely through private gifts and grants and no state monies be appropriated. Provides for printing "fire-safe" on product packages that comply with standards. Provides that any person selling or distributing products for consumption in California that do not comply with standards constitutes a misdemeanor punishable by specified fine. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: The adoption of this measure would not result in a substantial net increase in state costs. It would result in undetermined costs to local governments for law enforcement activities and in undetermined revenue to state special funds and local governments from fines and penalty assessments.
