Elkhart Smoke Free

Today the city of Elkhart will go completely smoke free! A year ago the city went smoke free everywhere but bars, today the bars are smoke free too. This marks a significant change for a city that has recently faced such tough economic times, they will now be able to experience reduced health care costs and a healthier place to live thanks to this new measure. So if Elkhart a city that is facing harder times than Indy can do it, I am sure that we can do it as well.

In other news the state legislature in Wisconsin passed a comprehensive smoke free policy that is expected to be signed by the Governor. Wisconsin now joins the other Mid-West states of Illinois, Ohio and Minnesota with compressive smoke free policies. Maybe next year Indiana can join this list too.
