Marshfield, Madison

Dave Wille, chair of BreatheFree Marshfield - Marshfield will take a vote to go 100 percent smoke-free on April 1st
-state law must not include preemption
-state law should be implemented swiftly

Steve Holtzman, former Madison alder - partial smoke-free policies didn't work for Madison
-simplest thing to do is having a level playing field
-Tavern League in Dane Cty. told council at the time that they wanted a level playing field
-proposed bill will create the level playing field and alleviate woes that were expressed earlier today by juke box operators, bowling center operators
-don't let the Tavern League dictate this key health issue
