Pennsylvania Smoking Ban in Effect

Andrew Nagy
Posted: September 15, 2008

Designated smoking sections in restaurants and bars in Pennsylvania are now a thing of the past as the state's smoking ban went into effect Thursday.

Signed by Gov. Ed Rendell in June, the law is a public places smoking ban, meaning it is now illegal to light up in restaurants, bars, and workplaces, on public transportation, and in certain sections of casinos.

The new law exempts tobacco shops and cigar bars in addition to taverns whose main revenue stream is not food.

The state health department, according to The Evening Sun of Hanover, said the ban would not be enforced by inspectors, but rather by complaints sent to the department via a hotline.
