Macon GA Call to Action!

Proposed Smoking Ban The Public Safety Committee of the Macon City Council in Georgia recently passed an ordinance that would prohibit smoking in public places, including bars, restaurants, private clubs and parking garages, while exempting tobacco shops, live-in health care facilities and outdoor seating areas at restaurants. The full council is likely to vote on the measure on April 19th.

This Bill could:
Ban the use of electronic cigarettes in places where tobacco cigarette smoking is prohibited

Councilwoman Nancy White, who co-sponsored the measure, said the proposed ban, which would close "some of the loop-holes in the State wide ordinance passed in 2005," could take effect as early as September 1, 2011, if the full council passes it.
