Gov. James Doyle wouldn't guarantee a statewide smoking ban, but called it "very doable."
"I think the need for a statewide ban is very necessary," he said in a telephone interview Friday afternoon with The Reporter and several other Wisconsin newspapers.
Doyle said it's his experience that establishments located in cities with a ban in place have mostly seen an increase in business...
Doyle applauded the efforts of Fond du Lac residents and officials to get a smoking ban passed. The ban became effective Feb. 2.
"I've been fighting now for 2 1/2 years (for a statewide ban) -- the time has come to enact it," Doyle said.
