Number one reason local government......

......doesn't need to regulate (ban) secondhand smoke in bars & restaurants.

Because OSHA already does.

0.0005g/cu. M. is the OSHA permissible exposure limit (PEL) of nicotine (secondhand smoke)

0.0000033g/cu. M is the actual median level of nicotine (secondhand smoke) measured by St. Louis Park, MN. Environmental Health Department in 2004.

Secondhand smoke in bars & restaurants is 150 times safer than OSHA permissible exposure limits. Isn't it good to know our MN. State Senate & House members understand math even as Hennepin, Ramsey, Mpls., St. Paul, & Bloomington fail to comprehend basic mathematics.

I'm curious to know when our State legislators are going to override the 2 counties & 3 cities above. Afterall the smoking ban ordinances deplete the state tax revenue of tobacco tax dollars. Seems to me if Hennepin County needs permission to use tax revenues for a stadium, they also need state permission to eliminate state taxes collected on tobacco products which used to be sold at the bars before the bans.

Hmmm. ....need any help writing that bill Senate & House members?
