WISCONSIN NEWS ROUNDUP: E-cigarettes get their turn on the Senate floor today
It's the Wisconsin Senate's turn today to consider letting people smoke electronic cigarettes in places like bars and restaurants. The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a public hearing on a bill by its chairman, West Bend Republican Glenn Grothman. He wants to exempt e-cigarettes from the statewide public indoor smoking ban adopted three and a half years ago. An Assembly panel held its own hearing on the bill yesterday.
