Gregali Sign Law

Alderman Gregali's excellent sign law is the best public smoking law for St. Louis City. Restaurants that register as "smoke-restricted" must ensure that nonsmokers will have a smoke-free experience, even though smoking is allowed in other parts of the venue. If we added a reasonable air filtration requirement in areas where smoking is allowed to protect workers, this would be a perfect law.

I am sure we could get almost 100 percent support from the St. Louis hospitality industry for this law, including a reasonable air filtration requirement.
