Vaping bill may be up in smoke
MONROE - A bill aimed at allowing electronic cigarettes to be used in public places, and not restricted under the state's indoor smoking ban, is getting mixed reaction as the vaping debate smolders on. But the bill appears to be running out of steam to reach a vote before the legislative session ends. Two bills, one in the state Assembly and one in the state Senate, seek to specify that e-cigarettes may be used in public places, such as bars, and deem them exclusive from the Wisconsin smoke-free workplace law passed in 2010.
