Councilman Burkett's Bill

Dear Members of the St. Louis County Council,

I hope that you will support Councilman Burkett's bill to exempt bars in casinos that would otherwise be exempt if located in St. Louis County outside a casino. St. Louis County voters clearly voted to allow smoking in these establishments and there is nothing wrong with the Council correcting glitch in a law so that the law more perfectly fulfills the obvious will of the voters. I don't believe any County business would have any objection to Councilman Burkett's attempt to make the County smoking ban more fair in its application and more reflective of the will of County voters.
