ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York is banning smoking near after-school programs.

The law signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo is intended to protect children from second-hand smoke at public and private schools.

It will establish a 100-foot boundary from entrances, exits and programs’ outdoor areas while those after-school programs are in session.

It takes effect in 30 days, also requiring programs to post signs specifying when smoking is prohibited.
