Elgin debates ban on smoking: Health, wealth, bars, casino are discussed

Article in today's Chicago Tribune -- Elgin debates ban on smoking: Health, wealth, bars, casino are discussed, by Amanda Marrazzo:

    Elgin officials said this week that they are considering an ordinance that would restrict
    smoking in restaurants, bars, bowling alleys and VFW halls.

    Among the opposition to the idea at Wednesday's special City Council meeting were
    restaurant owners and employees, and casino officials.

    Elgin's current ordinance prohibits smoking in a few public places, such as municipal
    buildings, movie theaters and schools. Opponents said a ban would hurt all who make a
    living in the bar and restaurant business
