New Report: Statewide Smokefree Law Would Not Hurt Indiana Restaurant, Bar Businesses
Date:8/7/2013

Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) August 07, 2013

Smokefree restaurant and bar laws are good for health, and a new study published in the scientific journal Preventing Chronic Disease reports that an Indiana smokefree law would not harm the restaurant and bar industry. This finding is based on an analysis of data from local jurisdictions in nine states, including Indiana.

“Smokefree laws save lives, and this study is further proof that they don’t hurt business,” said Richard Feldman MD, member of the American Lung Association Local Leadership Board and Director of Medical Education and Residency Training for Franciscan St Francis Health. There are 19 communities in Indiana that have made great strides in protecting workers and the public from secondhand smoke, but too many Hoosiers continue to be exposed to secondhand smoke on the job and in public places."

The study, called The Economic Impact of Smoke-Free Laws on Restaurants and Bars in 9 States (http://www.cdc.gov/pcd/issues/2013/12_0327.htm) and released on August 1 by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Foundation, analyzed the potential impact of a statewide smokefree law on employment and taxable sales revenues in nine states—Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and West Virginia. For North Carolina, the study examined the impact of a 2010 statewide smokefree restaurant and bar law. The other eight states each have a number of communities with local smokefree restaurant and/or bar ordinances, but no statewide smokefree law.

The study, funded by Pfizer Inc. through a grant to the CDC, found that smokefree laws in eight of the nine states included in the analysis had no significant effect on restaurant or bar employment or revenues. These eight states included North Carolina, the only state in the analysis w
