There is no safe level of exposure...

Secretary Hayden, representing the Department of Public Health, as well as Governor Doyle, immediately explained in his testimony that "this is not about parties and politics nor is it about smokers v. non-smokers -- this bill will protect all citizens of Wisconsin. No other single legislative act will have such a profound and widespread effect on public health."

He also stressed the importance of the Surgeon General's June 2006 Report, which concluded there is no safe level of exposure to secondhand smoke. SB150 will make sure no one gets sick at the expense of another's addiction; after SB150 no one will have to risk their health to earn a paycheck or enjoy dining out.
