Study Finds NYC's Smoke-Free Air Act Has Not Hurt Restaurant Business

John J. Smith writes: Who can I complain to about changing the laws on smoking in restaurants? I was in a resturant this past Saturday non-smoking area, like alot of good that does. I would like to be able to go to a resturant that is smoke-free, all the hamburger resturants are smoke-free, lets do the same for the resturants as well. I enjoy eating out, but with the no smoking areas in the same area as the smoking section, why bother. I feel that a smoker can stop smoking for a mere 30 to 45 minutes while dining out. Please if you know who I can pass along my opions to let me know.

Joel T. Hill writes: I'm from Muskogee, Oklahoma. I and a few business associates would like to start a petition to ban smoking in public restaurants. Please send me anything you may have concerning this issue i.e. previous attemps to do so and what cities and states. Also tell me of any frederal laws which might be contrary to what we are trying to accomplish.

Joy Brazonis writes: I am doing a school project on smoking. I need info on when the "No smoking in Public Restaurants" began. I need all the info I can get. Such as when it began and do restaurants have a choice to put up signs?

Apte writes: Congratulations! Good Work. Carry On. I send this message from Holland. We have many laws against smoking on paper only. In restaurants we do not have separate sections for smokers and non-smokers as in USA.

Ruben Balza writes: I am looking for some kind of economic information that supports the smoking ban in restaurants. Please, if you have some useful information, send it to my email address.

Chambersburg is known for their excellent Italian cuisine. It will take place on Thursday, November 21 lunch and dinner. For a list of restaurants, email me. (Note - This event took place in 1996)
