Clearing the Air provides testimony in the MN House regarding air quality, secondhand smoke, and OSHA standardsYou can follow the coverage here.
Note the smoking ban's author, Rep. Huntley, in the background of the photo.
Writer Don Davis politely states:
Rep. Tom Huntley, DFL-Duluth thinks about testimony being delivered Thursday by Mark Wernimont, an air-handling engineer who opposes a statewide smoking ban.
My guess is that Rep. Huntley was actually thinking about how to rid the testimony of yours truly, rather than actually giving thoughtful consideration to the air quality testing of secondhand smoke conducted by a local environmental health department and the American Cancer Society.
Especially since those test results proved secondhand smoke is 15 - 25,000 times SAFER than OSHA Standards CFR 29. It's very odd that facts and air quality testing apparently have no place in an air quality issue.
