Finally - a smoking ban in Wisconsin

It looks like we're finally getting a smoking ban here in Wisconsin. It's about time. The Tavern League is awful here, and has a huge amount of political power at the state level. The Tavern League is, of course, pro-smoking. They resisted a ban for years, but have now seemingly acquiesced to the interest of public health. Unfortunately, the ban won't go into effect until July 2010, more than a year from now. But at least it's going to happen. That is, unless some of the Republicans in the minority of the state legislature decide to try to water the ban down before final passage. Let's hope not. I can't wait for a smoke-free Wisconsin.
