Georgia -

Thomas Hopkins, an orthopedic surgeon serving on the University System of Georgia's Board of Regents, wants the university system's board of regents to consider his proposal of banning smoking at the system's 31 schools early next year. The ban would apply to all students, staff and visitors.

There is already a ban in place that prevents smoking in enclosed state owned, or leased, facilities. University system officials say Hopkins' proposal would ban smoking on all outdoor campus areas as well.
