Oregon lawmakers are looking, once again, at a water Flouridation bill. The bill has been moving through committees and it is likely that it will go to a vote this week.
Proponents have won over some legislators because of amendments to the bill that supposedly allow local water districts to "opt-out."
The amendments would require communities to hold an election in the 2008 primary or general election to decide whether the local government should "decline to provide state-required fluoridation of drinking water."
Once fluoridated, there is no way communities can "un-fluoridate" short of returning to the legislature to get another bill passed -- no easy feat.
More on this from Kim Kaminsky, Executive Director of Oregon Citizens for Safe Drinking Water.
