Buenos Dias! Katherine here, with an update from the frozen North – Wisconsin!
Yesterday, Lance stumped for the Breathe Free Wisconsin Act with Governor Jim Doyle in Madison and Milwaukee. The Breathe Free Act is a statewide smoking ban that’s unfortunately being held hostage by a handful of legislators. Gov. Doyle has been pushing for it and Lance made the trip to help draw attention to the issue.
From the photos, you can see Wisconsinites’ enthusiasm for this law. They’ll be the 24th state in the US to go smoke free when it passes. And I say “when” because it’s just a matter of time. No matter how much some politicians want to keep this legislation from being signed into law, smoke free’s not going anywhere. The people want it and most of the legislators support it. As Lance said, it’s the moral thing to do. Let’s hope they’re successful sooner rather than later!
