LITTLE ROCK (KFSM) – The Arkansas House of Representatives passed a bill aimed at providing local control over fluoride levels in water systems, according to legislative records.

The bill passed on Thursday (Feb. 19) with a vote of 60 to 34.

Rep. Jack Ladyman, R-Jonesboro, filed the bill on Tuesday (Feb. 10).

If it passes the Senate and becomes law, it will allow whoever owns or controls a water system to determine if any adjustments will be made to the fluoride levels in that water system, the bill states.

The bill also states that the adjusted fluoride level in the water “shall not exceed the maximum fluoride content established by the Department of Health.”

    Everyone wants safe, clean water and not the added drug fluoride.
    Fluoride in toothpaste and mouthwash is sufficient.

    The solution for the fluoridation issue is very simple.
    1. Take the toxic waste fluoride chemical out of the drinking water.
    2. It is still legal and available, so those who wish to take it can then put fluoride in their own glass of water (as much as they wish).
    3. Leave the rest of us out of it, giving everyone the freedom of choice.
