Gov. Sonny Perdue has signed a bill that will ban smoking in most public places
in the state of Georgia. The ban will be in effect July 1.
The only places smokers will now be permitted to smoke in public will be bars
and restaurants that do not admit minors; workplace smoking areas with separate
air handling systems; and hotel and motel rooms set aside for smokers. Those violating
the new law face fines of $100 to $500.
