Are we really going to let Minnesota beat us to this?

The Minnesota State Senate just passed their "Freedom to Breathe Act" by a vote of 41-24. This comprehensive smoke-free law applies to all workplaces, including restaurants and taverns.
Seriously, are we going to let Minnesota beat us to this?

Co-sponsorship deadline extended until tomorrow!

There's still time to ask your Senator and Representative to sign on to the smoke-free air bill as a co-sponsor! Click here to send your legislators an e-mail.

Add New Mexico to the list

New Mexico became the 17th state this month to pass a statewide smoke-free law that prohibits smoking in all public places and workplaces, including restaurants and taverns. The new law also specifically allows New Mexico communities to pass more comprehensive local ordinances, a key provision that sets a strong minimum standard but protects local control.
17 states have done this, and states like Minnesota are well on their way. It's time for Wisconsin to join the list of smoke-free states.

It's official: LRB−0077/6

Thank you to:

Today these original co-sponsors of a comprehensive statewide smoke-free air bill circulated a memo to their colleagues in the legislature asking them to sign on to the bill to make Wisconsin 100% smoke-free - no exceptions. Legislators have until March 23 - is your legislator on board yet?
