Eau Claire passes strong smoke-free ordinance!

Today Eau Claire became the 5th city in Wisconsin to pass a strong smoke-free ordinance that includes all workplaces, restaurants, and bars. Eau Claire will implement their ordinance on July 1st.

Congratulations to everyone who worked hard to get this ordinance passed and all the activists who contacted their city council members asking for this change!

After the State Legislature concluded without passing a smoke-free law, it's great to see communities taking this issue on and protecting their citizens from secondhand smoke.
