The Augustan: Sen. Bartlett Supported Bill Prohibiting Smoking in State Parks

The AJ has State Sen. Phil Bartlett's (D-Cumberland County) thoughts on a recently enacted law that bans smoking from Maine's state parks, including Crescent and Scarborough beaches:
“When you are talking about beaches, you are
talking about the harm and impact not just for public health, but also
wildlife,” Bartlett said. “I think it’s an extension of what’s been done in the
past to making sure that people can be in public places and not be exposed to
smoking, particularly those who have kids.”
