Hundreds of Michigan bar and restaurant owners fed up with the state's smoking ban are planning a smoking ban protest on New Year's Eve.
It's planned for 9 p.m. On that night, they say they will allow customers to light up inside.
A spokesman for the group Protest Private Property Rights in Michigan says the ban is causing bars to lose money, and enough is enough.
State government officials say the ban has not affected businesses.
The Michigan Licensed Beverage Association disagrees, saying 400 bars reported losses of more than 27 percent.
