Nebraska pulls a fast one: they're going smoke-free!

Moments ago the Nebraska Legislature overwhelmingly approved the newest statewide smoke-free law in the United States. This strong law includes all workplaces, bars, restaurants and other public places and will take effect in 2009.

I have to admit I didn't even know this was coming. That brings us up to 23 smoke-free states. Wisconsin better act quickly or we'll get stuck in the bottom half!

Congrats Nebraska.

(P.S. For the dorks out there - Nebraska's Legislature only has one house, so only one vote had to be taken!)

Update: Nebraska's smoke-free bill was signed into law today by their governor.
