Smoking ban going into effect

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Now that strict curbs on restaurant smoking have survived Virginia’s legislature, Gov. Tim Kaine is clear on his intent to enforce it.
In his monthly radio show Tuesday, the governor was unequivocal when asked about the ban that he will sign into law soon.
When a caller voiced concerns that the law might not be enforced, Kaine said the smoking ban is going to go into effect.
Kaine favored a total ban. The compromise that passed Virginia’s tobacco-friendly General Assembly exempts private clubs and separately ventilated rooms in restaurants.
After it’s signed, the ban takes effect Dec. 1.
