Springfield Senator Larry Bomke voted in favor of the measure. Thank you Sen. Bomke!
Meanwhile, other smoking dead-enders continue to exhibit exactly no intelligence in their arguments:
State Sen. Bill Brady, R-Bloomington, who opposed the measure, said the issue should come down to personal rights.Sigh. No, for the millionth time, people DO NOT have the right to do with their property anything they want. That’s why we have health codes. Health endangering practices simply aren’t allowed no matter how much the owner wants to partake in them. Brady knows this, it’s really quite simple, but he drags out this fallacy because he and his smoker allies have nothing else, including public opinion.
“People should have a right to do what they want to do with their property and that includes allowing people to smoke,” he said.
