Today a press conference was held at Three Kings Public House highlighting “Unfinished Business - Health and Fairness for All” a new education campaign sponsored by the Tobacco Free St. Louis coalition.
Following are a few quotes from today’s press conference
Stuart Slavin, physician at Saint Louis University
The Coalition has diligently followed the smoke-free law, and we have learned that exemptions to that law for some bars, restaurants, and casino, 145 in all, are a significant problem. They have created unfair business competition between the exempt and non-exempt businesses, and more importantly, the health of all county residents is not being protected.
