Illinois lawmaker's proposal highlights the real problem with todays government leaders.....lack of common sense and critical thinkinghttp://www.mysuburbanlife.com/clarendonhills/statenews/x1599389678/Changes-expected-in-gambling-expansion-proposal
Try thinking with some common sense for just a second. Your current riverboat casino revenue is down, which shows that they're operating under capacity IE. fewer visitors, fewer gamblers. Adding new riverboats and a new Chicago casino, which will also operate under capacity , while adding significant capital expenditure, IS NOT the answer......it's a recipe for more government debt.
What is the answer? Repeal the unnecessary smoking ban......if revenue doesn't come rebounding back....then let your economy damaging legislation (smoking ban) stand. However, in every locale around the globe, smoking bans have decimated the gaming and hospitality industry, reversing this onerous law WILL reverse the revenue losses.
Furthermore, air quality testing around the globe proves that secondhand smoke is 4 to 25,000 times SAFER than OSHA workplace permissible exposure limits:
Therefore secondhand smoke IS NOT a workplace health hazard.......it is however a hazard to the Nicoderm funded lobbyists and alternative nicotine manufacturer (Johnson & Johnson /RWJF) who convinced (deceived) lawmakers to enact these corrupt smoking ban laws.
