Am I correct in reading this that the Republicans are the ones voting against a real smoking ban? This is a very hot button item for me. I am always astounded to listen to any argument against putting this ban in place. Go to any major city around, none allow smoking and no one has lost any revenue. How does government not get involved in employee health issues? Our company had the federal government all over us for digging a 2 foot hole and not having a ladder present! This is government absurdity at its highest.
