(1)Existing law makes it an infraction for a person to smoke a cigarette, cigar, or other tobacco-related product within 25 feet of a playground or tot lot sandbox area.

This bill would make it an infraction for a person to smoke, as defined, a pipe, cigar, or cigarette on a state coastal beach or in a unit of the state park system, as defined, except as specified. The bill would require that the ban on smoking be in effect in units of the state park system only if the district superintendent of the state park system has posted an order in accordance with state park regulations policy that prohibits smoking in those areas, and public notice of the proposed order has been provided for at least 30 days. The bill would establish a state-mandated local program by creating a new crime.

This bill would permit the Department of Parks and Recreation or another relevant state agency to develop and post signs at a state coastal beach or a unit of the state park system to provide notice of the smoking prohibition. The bill would require the smoking prohibition to be enforced only after signs have been posted alerting the public of the prohibition, but would authorize warnings to be given before signs have been posted.

The bill would state the intent of the Legislature with regard to the enforcement of these prohibitions.

(2)The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.

This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason. Hide
