New Public Smoking Crackdowns Underway

More efforts are underway to clamp down on second-hand smoke… even in outdoor or almost-outdoor spaces.  S


everal Springfield parks have designated “kid-friendly park zones” where people are asked not to smoke outdoors near where kids are playing.  But there is no specific penalty for ignoring the request. 


Meanwhile, state regulators are considering new restrictions on smoking in the beer garden or patio areas of bars.  Sangamon County public health director Jim Stone says any rules should include a precise definition of what constitutes a beer garden.
