Forces is pleased to post the first real time study of statewide economic impact imposed by smoking bans.
It turns out that politicians and anti-tobacco are stealing the economic future from bar owners and taxpayers. The data reports are based on Colorado Department of Revenue statistics for Liquor Sales Taxes, Restaurant Revenue, and Tavern License holders. This data will be discussed today at 1:00 PM Mountain Standard Time on the Chuck Baker Show (Radio Colorado Network). Next week Forces Columnist Norman Kjono will post to a written analysis of economic impact data for two states (Colorado and Washington) with an MP3 audio link for the Chuck Baker Show. Here’s a preview of what’s to come. Stay tuned to Forces for the first breaking news on this highly important subject.
