© ci C_r WLFL-TV FOX News Channel 22 - 10:00 p.m. November 26, 1996 Bob Vernon: The smoke just won't clear. Carolyn Clifford: State bar and restaurant owners speak out. It all centers on a federal proposal to stop people from lighting up in dining facilities, but some say the loss of smokers could mean a loss of profits. Fox 22's Ron Coffey reports. Ron Coffey: Smoking in restaurants is a hot topic. Customer: I don't think it could be resolved quickly. I think over the last twenty years people have been debating this issue of second-hand smoke and smoke in public places. Shot at news conference Ron Coffey: The debate continues. Members of the state restaurant and bar association say smoking restrictions would mean a lot of lost revenues. Van Eure: We feel that this could greatly hurt the free enterprise system.. We feel that this takes away our opportunity to try in our own way to please our own customers. Ron Coffey: Under a federal indoor air-quality proposal, restaurants and bars would have to build smoking areas with separate ventilation systems. Shot of Coffey at Black Marlin restaurant Ron Coffey: Here at the Black Marlin, the smoking section has been reduced to just two tables. But once a month the restaurant holds a cigar night where everybody lights up a stogie. The management says the reason for the special evening is simple. Billy Naegele: We close the restaurant off for cigar smokers. We have a full house come in. Reservations are required. We do do a lot of bookings. Ron Coffey: Public hearings are being held in Washington, D.C., on the proposal and the public is ready to be heard. Kathleen Osborn: I definitely prefer eating in a non-smoking environment There's the health issue, the enjoyment issue... Shot of Van Eure and Joe Roche at news conference Ron Coffey: People on both sides of the smoking debate say those issues and more will be taken o into consideration. In Wake County, Ron Coffey, Fox 22, ten o'clock news. ###
