MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) – Wisconsin is liking its nearly year-old smoke free law more and more.
A new survey from the American Cancer Society finds 75 percent of state residents support the statewide ban on indoor smoking. That's a healthy increase over the 69 percent support it got while the Legislature was debating the ban.
The survey also shows support for the law crosses party lines, with Republicans, Democrats and independents all liking the change.
The same survey found 91 percent of respondents said they go out the same or more often now that bars and restaurants are smoke free.
Governor Scott Walker said last week, while he wasn't in favor of the state imposing the smoke free law, now he'd oppose any efforts to repeal it.
