What committee is it, and what's the anticipated outcome?

That is great news, Wisconsin! We just love our new Smoke Free Law here in Illinois and even many smokers are speaking positively about the smoking ban. I am so proud that we were able to move Illinois from one of the most smoker friendly states in the Country to a state that now has the strongest smoke free law in the Nation! What a dramatic and stunning turn-around for Illinois. You can do it too, Wisconsin!

The Senate Public Health Committee will be voting. I'm confident we'll get this bill through committee with bipartisan support.

Wisconsin really needs to pass this!

Having a smoking section in a restaurant is like having a peeing section in a swimming pool. Need I say more. Vote YES

I really hope they pass this bill! It is so important to everyone's health. Especially the people who choose not to smoke. I was in Chicago on January 1st and the bar/resturaunt we ate at was so nice,fresh and smoke-free. I wish I could go somewhere in my town and have that same atmosphere.
