Budget Address Tonight!

The governor will be addressing his budget priorities for the next 2 years tonight at 7 p.m. in his official Budget Address.
You can tune in on Wisconsin Public Television or Wisconsin Public Radio, or view a live stream here.

Governor Doyle's January 24th announcement of his comprehensive tobacco control package mobilized Wisconsin's tobacco-free movement. We appluad Governor Doyle for his intentions to raise the cigarette tax in Wisconsin by $1.25 and to fully fund the state's tobacco prevention and control program at $30 million per year.
What's left to be seen tonight is whether or not he will again call on the Wisconsin State Legislature to pass a comprehensive statewide smoke-free air bill that would protect all Wisconsinites from secondhand smoke. We support Governor Doyle's proposal for a smoke-free workplace law that would prohibit smoking in all indoor public places and workplaces, including restaurants and taverns.
Everyone deserves the right to breathe smoke-free air!
