Budget Signed!

Wisconsin's budget is officially signed! (That's SmokeFree Wisconsin Executive Director Maureen Busalacchi with Governor Doyle.) Thanks to everyone who fought for increased tobacco prevention and cessation funding and a higher cigarette tax. This is truly a victory for our state and our kids!

2 down, 1 to go: Now that the budget is done, we'll be focusing our attention on SB 150, the Breathe Free Wisconsin Act. You can find out more about the campaign by visiting or by visiting the smoke-free environments section of SmokeFree Wisconsin's website:
There is broad support across Wisconsin for a comprehensive smoke-free law, and with Minnesota and Illinois going smoke-free within three months of each other, now is the time for Wisconsin to join the trend.
