Madison's Smoking Ban Stays

Now this just needs to be expanded to Middleton, etc.
City leaders debate until early Monday morning to keep the smoking ban in the city of Madison in place.

A request to repeal the ban was voted down 10 to 9.

The council had three proposals to consider.

The option of letting the public decide in a spring vote failed 14 to 5.
The last proposal that would allow a temporary exemption for businesses that have been hurt by the ban, has been put off until a later date.
