Smoking To Be Banned In More Places This Summer

Smoking will be banned in more places in New York state parks this summer.

The governor's office says the state is expanding the number of smoke-free areas at state parks, pools and historic sites, including many of New York's popular beaches.

Governor Andrew Cuomo says residents should be able to enjoy the outdoors free of pollution from secondhand smoke.

The new rules vary from park to park, so the state has posted a list online of places where smoking is banned. The website is www.nysparks.com.

Violators of the rules can face fines of up to $250.

Smoking will still be allowed in most campsites, parking lots and open-air picnic areas.
