Michigan Governor Jennifer M. Granholm today signed legislation that will prohibit smoking in public places such as restaurants, bars, and hotels, or any place that serves food or beverages.
The Ron M. Davis Law, named after the late chief medical officer of the Michigan Department of Public Health, takes effect May 1, 2010, and will make Michigan the 38th state to ban smoking in public places.
