Smoke-free Wisconsin Act becomes law


Yesterday the Smoke-Free Wisconsin Act was officially signed into law by Gov. Doyle (hyperlink not yet active). At the press conference the governor stressed that this bill had broad bipartisan support and that the public has been asking for smoke-free air for a long time.

The bill won't take effect until next July, but in the meantime there are a few communities that will be going smoke-free this summer: Monona (June 1), Shorewood (July), Verona (August), and Dane County (August).
