FYI Pa does not have a smoking ban. Philadelphia and Scranton does however.Gotta say Thank you IL for joioning OH, MI,TX, NY, DC, CA, NC, FL, WI, NJ, MD, PA and all the rest of the states for either enacting a smoking ban or seriously working towards one.
Also, The northeastern part of the state is going very well without a state imposed smoking ban. Many businesses are making decisions on their own without the state (big brother) telling them how to run them. Quite a few in this area are going "smoke free" on their own.
That is a giant step to show other states, that it CAN be done without dictatorship, which results in the small business owner able to keep his lively hood.
There are many choices in this area. No bickering, or loss of income. Freedom of choice. This is what this country is all about. When purchasing something
in the state you reside in is legal, it is still about choice, albeit with certain limitations. Just as most things are. It just shouldn't be regulated by government when it is still considered "legal". It is about what the businesses decide in order to make a living. We as a people can then decide what business to frequent.
