Mayor Davlin of Springfield IL under attack for a common sense approachThis story coming out of Springfield, IL. shows the misguided, uninformed, and blatantly deceptive lengths that the paid pro-smoking ban activists will go to.
The Mayor proposed a smoking ban exemption for establishments which installed upgraded ventilation systems.
The pro-ban activists fired back with threats from the EPA saying it had no indoor air quality standards for secondhand smoke......no duh! That's because OSHA regulates indoor air quality not the EPA and the pro-smoking ban activists don't want to consult with OSHA because according to the workplace authority there is no air quality problem with secondhand smoke. The St. Louis Park, MN. environmental health department proved that when they found secondhand smoke compared to OSHA regulations is 152 times safer than necessary.
