What Do You Think of the New Wisconsin Law That Bans Smoking in all Hotel Guest Rooms?
USA Today’s Barbara De Lollis is reporting that Wisconsin in July passed a statewide smoking ban that bans smoking in every hotel guest room.
From USA Today:
“In most states that have banned smoking in public places, such as Kansas, the legislation allows hoteliers to exempt a certain percentage of guest rooms.
But in Wisconsin, “there can be zero rooms” that allow smoking in sleeping rooms, Trisha Pugal, CEO of Wisconsin Hotel and Lodging Association told me in an interview.”
I, for one, can’t stand the foul smell of a smoking hotel room. However, we always stay in non-smoking rooms.
What do you think of this new law? Is this fair to people who choose to smoke?
No, it’s not fair. I can’t stand the foul smell of smoking rooms either, although we smoke. My husband and I went to Wisconsin every chance we got. Too bad, tomorrow we’ll be heading to Southern Illinois and Missouri instead. Morons and Cheeseheads in Wisconsin. Shame on them. The Voyageur Inn used to have a magical way of making a smoking room smell fresh upon check-in. Guess THAT doesn’t matter any more.
