40. And business increased!
Montgomery County restaurant sales tax receipts have risen since the law took effect on Oct. 9, 2003, increasing more than 22 percent in the past four years, Andrews said in his statement.

"Not only have sales at existing restaurants continued to rise over the past four years, but many new restaurants have opened during this period throughout the County," he said.

"The law is working exactly as intended, protecting restaurant workers and diners at no cost to taxpayers. Enforcement is not an issue, because of the law's strong public support."
