Bars continue to profit after smoke-free laws put in place

The Tavern League would like you to believe that smoke-free laws slash profits for tavern owners, but the research proves otherwise. A new study published in The American Journal of Public Health found that neither selling price nor sales declined for bars in areas with smoke-free laws when compared to bars in areas without smoke-free air laws.

In other words, when smoke-free laws are enacted...

Some things stay the same
Selling price is the same
Sales are the same

Some things change
Workers are healthier
Patrons are healthier

What is holding our elected officials back from making this important decision for the health of Wisconsin?
