Smoking Ban Exemptions?
From the King County Journal:
A new group of bar and tavern owners has found a potential sponsor for a bill that would exempt an establishment from the new public-smoking ban if it has taken at least a 10 percent hit on its revenue.
The exemption or waiver wouldn’t apply to places where minors frequent, such as bowling alleys and skating rinks, or to restaurants.
The group, Hospitality Partners, an offshoot of the foes of Initiative 901, which voters approved overwhelmingly in November, has found an Eastern Washington legislator who may sponsor the bill.
