The State General Assembly passed a bill on Thursday that would ban smoking at all public parks and beaches by a vote of 64-7, the Courier Post reports. That bill now goes before the State Senate, but no vote has been scheduled at this time.
The assembly bill changes the wording of a law that prohibited
smoking indoors to prohibit smoking in certain public places and workplaces.
This law concerns state-operated parks and beaches.
What are your thoughts? Does it bother you when someone is smoking near you on the beach? Is it your personal right to smoke wherever you wish?
