BRIGANTINE–Gov. Chris Christie vetoed a bill Wednesday that would have banned smoking in public parks and limited smoking on public beaches. He announced the veto in a press release Wednesday night, pointing to numerous state municipalities that have already banned smoking in their parks and beaches.

“While I appreciate the (bill) sponsors’ concerns regarding the health risks poses by smoking and secondhand smoke, I am not persuaded that a prescriptive, ‘one size fits all’ state ban on smoking in public parks and beaches is advisable at this time” wrote the Governor.
