This bill would make it an infraction, punishable by a fine of $25 to smoke a tobacco product or dispose of a cigar or cigarette in a State Park. The bill would also require the Department of Parks and Recreation to post signs in state park units to inform the public of the smoking prohibition. Elimating smoking on beaches and parks will reduce the harmful cigrettes butt litter in these special places. Additionaly, the reduction of smoking will decrease the negantive side effects of smoking that will in turn increase the recreational value for visitors.
