Local control? It depends. Fluoride, yes. Gay rights, no.

Posted By on Wed, Feb 11, 2015 at 9:34 AM

A bill has been introduced to allow local water systems to determine how much fluoride is added to water.

The act provides "local control."

Sponsors:

Representatives Ladyman, Bell, Bentley, Branscum, Brown, Copeland, L. Fite, Gates, M. Gray, Harris, Jean, Lemons, Lowery, Lundstrum, D. Meeks, S. Meeks, Miller, Payton, Richmond, Rushing, B. Smith, Sorvillo, Tosh, Vaught, Wallace.

By: Senators Collins-Smith, Flippo, G. Stubblefield.

These sponsors are, of course, likely to provide a bloc of votes AGAINST local control when it comes to equal treatment under the law for gay people. Legal discrimination against LGBT people is much too important to be left to local citizens. Tooth decay is another matter.
