If you like vaping, Wisconsin restaurants should be your destination

Because who doesn't like a dose of second-hand vaping aerosols with their pasta or prime rib? Read on.

There is fresh evidence of the perversity with which WI Republicans are running the State Legislature in the name of 'freedoms.'
You won't sit next to vapers in State Capitol hearing rooms, but key GOP legislators are fine with your sitting next them at your next fish fry.
Last week it was their pledge to protect their misinterpretation of Second Amendment freedoms by refusing to consider even discussion of reasonable gun safety proposals which polling show enjoying 80% support.

Opposition despite a blatantly mostly-false position, with the 'mostly-false' rating being a PolitiFact gift.

Today we learned that GOP legislators are refusing to hold hearings or move forward legislation to ban indoor vaping, with a key leadership role on the issue engineered by a legislator who owns a restaurant in which he wants diners to vape should they choose.
"I understand some people have concerns, but I believe this legislation is an overreach of state power," Sen. Duey Stroebel of Saukville told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in a statement. "Ultimately, private property owners should have the freedom to choose if they want to allow or disallow the use of vapor products at their businesses."...

Stroebel won't hold a public hearing or a vote in the legislative committee he oversees to advance the legislation to the full Senate. Rep. Rob Swearingen of Rhinelander, who owns a supper club in northern Wisconsin, also doesn't plan to advance the bill in the Assembly's state affairs committee.
