I could not agree more that

I'd like to ask about the expression 'I could not agree more that.' Does it sound correct in the context of a letter to the editor? Let me give you an example:

I could not agree more that smoking in public places should be considered a legal offence.

Thank you.

    Well, you'd need some context to justify it, sunnyweather. Who or what would you be agreeing with?

    It's a letter in which a student presents arguments against smoking in public places. I wonder if 'that' should be used in the sentence after I could not agree more that ... and if it is appropriate style for such a letter to the editor.

    Thank you, Loob, for you help.

    "That" is OK, and the style isn't a problem: I just think it's rather an odd thing to write. You use "I couldn't agree more" when you're wholeheartedly agreeing with something that someone else has just said. How does that tie in with writing a 'letter to the editor'?
