Governor Perdue has scheduled a 2 pm news conference where he will announce his decision on whether to sign or veto a statewide smoking ban.

The bill bans smoking in most enclosed places of work and recreation; it allows restaurants and bars to permit smoking if they don't serve or employ people under age 18.
