WISCONSIN: (CALL TO ACTION!) Stop outrageous 71% retail AND floor tax in Governor’s proposed budget! THREE PUBLIC HEARINGS scheduled in April (next is 4/10). Please plan to attend & speak or submit written comment. Most effective advocacy is to SHOW UP!!
OXFORD, MISSISSIPPI: (HEADS UP!) Some businesses are apparently too helpless to ban vaping for themselves in their business, so ask city officials to deny ALL businesses the freedom to allow vaping. Oppose indoor bans that mislead public to think it’s as hazardous as smoking!
