I am a longtime Republican conservative and business owner here in Illinois. I can vouch to everyone in Alabama that our 6-year-old comprehensive statewide indoor smoking law has been good for health and good for business.

Recent polls show that more than 84 percent of Illinois residents, including a majority of smokers, now support the smoking ban. In addition, the law is supported in the state Legislature by majorities of both Republicans and Democrats.

The time has come for the great state of Alabama to go smoke-free in restaurants, work places and other public places.
