A recent telephone survey conducted by International Communications Research (ICR) indicates that New Jersey restaurants, bars and casinos may not see their profits go up in smoke if New Jersey lawmakers enact a Clean Indoor Air Act.

Nearly two-thirds of the adults who call New Jersey home would support a statewide Clean Indoor Air Act, according to the survey. Support for the proposed legislation was equally strong with adults in the Mid-Atlantic region--Delaware, southeastern Pennsylvania, southern New York and southwest Connecticut--a major feeder market for the casino and hospitality industry in the Garden State.
