Statewide representation

Citizen from Nekoosa - please do this for workers who don't have a choice

Dr. Todd Mahr, allergist at Gundersen Lutheran, American Lung Association leadership group member, local smoke-free advocate - sees patients whose asthma flares due to working in smoky environments
-Tavern League in Onalaska told city council not to pass a local smoke-free policy because they would rather have a statewide smoke-free law to level the playing field - interesting that none of those people have been supporting the proposed bill

David Ahrens, UW Cancer Researcher - bartender health study in MSN and Appleton showed immediate health improvement after smoke-free went into effect
-air quality in bars is 3 times as bad as "hazardous" level of outdoor air alert system; 6 times as dangerous as the levels we experienced this Monday when the state issued an air quality alert
