Last speaker!

Randy Radtke, former WI legislator - speaking to libertarian arguments
-was it wrong to make coal mines safer and eliminate the scourge of Black Lung? To clear out asbestos from schools and other buildings? To install sprinkler systems in buildings? To require restaurants to adhere to proper refrigeration, food handling standards? To create the 40 hr. work week? To put safety equipment in industrial workplaces? To regulate chemical emmissions to protect our air? To fend against ground water contamination? These are all regulations that serve a good purpose.

Med student from the UW - she wants to stay and work in a smoke-free state
-WI can't continue to receive failing grades for health disparities
