Wisconsin is located in west of Lake Michigan, and south of Lake Superior. The state capital is Madison,
and the largest city is Milwaukee. As of 2008, there are estimated 5.6 million residents. Wisconsin's
economy is based on farming, mining and lumbering. In the late20th Century, tourism became
important, as many people living on former farms commuted to jobs elsewhere. In recent decades,
service industries, especially medicine and education, have become dominant as heavy industry declined.

Wisconsin law bans smoking in all hotel guestrooms.

In July 2010, Wisconsin passed a statewide smoking ban that bans smoking in every hotel
guestroom. In many states, the legislation allows hoteliers to exempt a certain percentage
of guestrooms. However, in Wisconsin, there can be zero rooms" that allow smoking in
sleeping rooms, T Pugal, CEO of Wisconsin Hotel and Lodging Association told USA-today
in an interview. Wisconsin is the second state in the USA after Michigan to pass anti-smoking
legislation that doesn't exempt hotels. In fact, the group lobbied to let hotels retain a certain
percentage of smoking rooms, but the proposal was shot down. "People tend not to believe,"
she says. "We even created a signage guide for lodging properties to help educate the guest.
In the hospitality industry, you don't want to appear inhospitable." Wisconsin's roughly 2,000
hotels post signs declaring their building a non-smoking facility. They're also requiring guests
to initial a statement promising to comply or face paying a fee. Hotels are charging penalty
fees anywhere from $100 to $300.
