ATLANTA (AP) -- The board governing Georgia's university system is expected to hold a preliminary committee vote on a system-wide campus tobacco ban next month.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports University System of Georgia staff members will have discussions with leaders of institutions in other states with smoking bans on the way the policies were implemented. Those discussions are expected to take place within the next month.

If approved, the tobacco ban would prohibit anyone from using tobacco products -- including electronic cigarettes -- on all 31 campuses in the University of Georgia system. The ban would also apply to spectators at sporting events.
