Indiana business owners and customers forced to make decisions on their own....without government help.....how will they survive?http://www.dnj.com/article/B2/20110406/NEWS02/304060111/Proposed-Indiana-smoking-ban-defeated
INDIANAPOLIS -- Once more Indiana has snuffed out an attempt to ban smoking in the workplace. A Senate committee Wednesday voted nearly unanimously to kill a bill that arrived from the House so watered down, not even the American Cancer Society would support it.
How will they survive?
Quite well of course.
Without a Nicoderm funded, government imposed smoking ban the hospitality businesses in Indiana will succeed, whereas states and localities with smoking bans have seen massive numbers of bar & restaurant closures:
3,382 UK pubs closed after nationwide smoking ban
South Dakota's smoking ban, just one month old, has already cost the state, charities, and local hospitality businesses millions of dollars in lost revenue
By deciding for themselves if they'd like to visit smoking or non-smoking establishments....without government intervention.
How about the employees, aren't they being "killed" by secondhand smoke, as the Nicoderm funded "health" organizations continually tell us?
Let's see what air quality testing and OSHA (the authority on protecting employee health) has to say:
Air quality testing of secondhand smoke (link above) proves SHS is 4 to 25,000 times SAFER than OSHA workplace air quality regulations.
Free markets and freedom of choice....it's hard to see a downside in that.
