Our Smoke Free Arizona program turned 6 last month. Voters approved the Act back in November of ’06 by a few percentage points. The Initiative language gave us a super-short turn-around time and we turned the key on the program by May of ’07. Implementation of the Initiative was smooth from the get-go and compliance with the voter approved law has been very good- as you can see in our most recent Annual Report. There’s a lot of detail in the report but one of the take-home stories is that compliance at bars and restaurants is pretty good and complaints are down in that sector. Complaints from other kinds of businesses continue- so our program focus shapes around improving compliance in that sector.
