More thoughts from speakers

Ed Lump, Wisconsin Restaurant Association - this was a tough issue for the WRA, but they put aside passion and emotons and studied the facts
-not a lot has changed except for a continual pile-up of evidence in support of smoke-free - consumer attitudes are shifting, communities are passing local ordinances, health advocates have become more vocal
-there is no evidence nationwide to show negative economic effects due to statewide laws
-lots of people think they're entitled to exemptions, but it's time to do this for everyone
