State gets poor grades for tobacco control
The American Lung Association has given Wisconsin poor grades for its tobacco control.
The Badger State got an "F" for providing smoke-free air, by not approving a statewide public indoor smoking ban.
Wisconsin also got an "F" in its coverage of medications, counseling and other efforts to get smokers to quit.
The state got a "C" for its cigarette tax, despite raising it by a dollar a year ago to $1.77 a pack.
