A group of Republican state representatives are hopeful this could be the year the Legislature bans the addition of fluoride in municipal water supplies.
On March 12, the House Resources, Recreation and Development Committee voted 16-3 to recommend passage of House Bill 192, sponsored by Republican Reps. Richard Marple of Hooksett and Raymond Howard of Alton. HB 192 would prohibit the introduction of fluoride in municipal water systems. The vote carries significance because since 2011 four bills banning the chemical’s use by cities and towns operating public water systems have been killed in committee by unanimous or near unanimous votes against them each time.
