New Jersey Smoke Free Air Act

On July 20, 2018, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed legislation (S.B. 2534) prohibiting the smoking of tobacco products and the use of electronic smoking devices in all enclosed indoor places of public access, workplaces, and at all public parks and beaches. The new provisions:

  • Added “public parks and beaches” to areas where smoking is prohibited; and
  • Defined a public beach as a state, county, or municipal beach, but not the parking lot that is adjacent to, but outside of, the public beach.

The law is effective January 16, 2019.
