Happy Valentine’s Day

HB2267 will be heard in the Public Health Committee NEXT Tuesday – February 21, 2012.  HB2267/Restore Local Rights is a similar bill to what we supported last year.  This bill, if passed and signed by Governor Fallin, will finally allow cities and towns the right to decide to have smoke-free public places!  Like BARS – where most musicians work.

This seems like the long hard way to get OUR workplaces smoke-free – but it is the ONLY way to undo what both the Tobacco Lobbyists (there are 14 registered tobacco lobbyists up at the Oklahoma State Capitol) and the Oklahoma Restaurant Association did in 1987.  But we CAN do it!

Check out this letter to the editor from last week’s Oklahoman:

Tobacco lobby damages Oklahoma’s health
