From the Bill signing:
Governor Doyle with a grateful constituent.
Many in Wisconsin have been working for years to get smoke free air legislation passed.
Even Lance Armstrong tried to help.
On Wednesday, May 13, 2009, the Wisconsin Legislature passed smoke free air legislation.
On Monday, May 18, 2009, Governor Jim Doyle signed that bill into law making Wisconsin the 27th smoke free state.
The law will take effect on July 5, 2010.
