Wisconsin smoking ban complaints continue to drop

The number of complaints over Wisconsin’s statewide smoking ban law has steadily dropped since it went into effect in July.

The state Department of Health Services posted data on Wednesday shows there were 205 complaints in the first month of the law, but that dropped to just 78 for the period covering Oct. 5 through Nov. 4.

Anti-smoking groups that pushed for the law banning smoking in all restaurants, bars and work places heralded the news as proof that the law is working.

Businesses reported to be in violation first receive a warning letter from the state and subsequent complaints can lead to fines for smokers and businesses.
