A Smoke Screen

Badung-Bali Legislature Ratify Smoke-Free Rules

(5/4/2013) Seputarbali.com reports that in a final session of the current term of Bali’s Badung House of Representatives (DPRD-Badung), legislators ratified rules for Smoking-free area for the regency, addressing both hotels and government buildings.

The secretary for Bali Child Protection Agency, Titik Suhariyati, welcomed the ratification of no-smoking rules. She was initially concerned that delays would occur to the ratification of rules and penalties for smoking in public places in Bali’s southernmost regency.

Said Titik: “We welcome the ratification of the smoke-free rules for Badung. We also hope that these rules will help reduce the consumption of cigarettes.

She said the new smoke-free zone rules that are now law in Badung are not intended merely to forbid people to smoke. “The meaning of smoke-free zones is very simple – don't smoke in certain areas such as schools, medical facilities and other places. If you want to smoke, please use the areas designated for smoking,” Titik said.

Meanwhile the vice-regent of Badung, I Ketut Sudikerta, also expressed his deep appreciation to legislators who ratified the anti-smoking rules.
