    Rationale

    It has been pointed out that it is important to clarify that smoke can cause eye irritation as well as smoke obscuration and that the principal effect of smoke obscuration is not an actual health effect but that it can impair egress and/or rescue in case of fire. This ballot item provides such clarifying information.
