The rumor out there is that Smoke Free Indy is at least partially supported by government funds. I hope I'm wrong. Otherwise, government money is being used to lobby another government agency.
If this is the case, where is the government money for those who disagree with smoking bans? Doesn't government money for one special interest group give them an unfair advantage? Why should taxpayers support a special interest group over another one? Doesn't due process require that both special interest groups receive public funds so the fight at least starts out to be even?
I'm continuing to dive into this and will let you know what I find out.
