The bills would have prohibited smoking in all enclosed public places in Georgia, including government owned, leased, and operated facilities and enclosed areas in places of employment. The bills also provided that these facilities must display a No Smoking sign and may not contain smoking related paraphernalia. Private residences, vehicles, stand-alone bars, some hotel rooms, private and semi-private rooms in nursing homes, retail tobacco stores, and outdoor places of employment would have been exempt from the smoking prohibition. Finally, penalties for violating the smoking ban would have included monetary fines, suspension, or revocation of the facility's business license, and injunctive relief.
