Dear Oregon State Parks Board:

Restricting smoking in Oregon's Parks and Natural Areas is an excellent idea that I fully support.

A recent article quoted a Department spokes person as saying only warnings would be written upon discovery of violations of a smoking ban.  I hope that is NOT the case and that maximum fines are imposed for smoking on trails and other locations within Oregon's Parks and Natural Areas, where second hand smoke is a noxious experience that I have had more often than I want to.

Please ban smoking in Oregon's Parks and Natural Areas with instructions to personnel to strictly enforce the rules.
