Smoked Out

New, 3 comments

The week's 59th act of restaurant legislation involves banning smoking outside restaurants, and no, the GGRA isn't happy about this one either: "Some restaurant owners are worried that Daly's proposal will hurt business. The proposal requires workers to 'request' that any person violating the law stop smoking. Kevin Westlye, executive director of the Golden Gate Restaurant Association, said that could jeopardize the safety of workers." There's got to be a middle ground between overlegislation and oversensitivity, yes? [SFE]
