Mpls Star Tribune attempts to force Wisconsin legislature to enact smoking ban law

The arrogance of the Minneapolis Star Tribune knows no bounds.....forcing their editorial pro-smoking ban agenda on the State of Wisconsin......priceless.

However the liberal MN paper of record left out the fact that bans here in the Twin Cities and outstate area have
closed down 155+ bars and restaurants and counting.

Meanwhile the Wisconsin Badger Herald reponds with an editorial piece of its own:

Clearing the Air would like to provide the Badger Herald and free market Wisconsin lawmakers with some very concrete evidence to reject the Star Tribune's effort to implement Wisconsin laws by proxy:

The Mineapolis Star Tribune failed to mention that MN smoking bans have closed down 155+ bars and restaurants......and eliminated 5,000 - 7,000 jobs.

Meanwhile air quality testing proves that secondhand smoke is NOT a workplace hazard.....actually up to 25,000 times SAFER than OSHA regulations:

Johns Hopkins, the American Cancer Society, a Minnesota Environmental Health Department, and various researchers whose testing and report was peer reviewed and published in the esteemed British Medical Journal......prove that secondhand smoke is 2.6 - 25,000 times SAFER than occupational (OSHA) workplace regulations:
