Here is an update from the NJ Citizens Opposing Forced Fluoridation:
The good news, folks: The NJ Public Water Supply Fluoridation Act S2856/A3709 has died for the NJ 2009 Legislative session. The bad news: the Senate version already has a number: S933 for the new legislative session.
According to the NJ Office of Legislative Services, the bill has only been assigned a number, sponsored by Vitale, and will be heading to the Senate Committee on Health and Human Services when it is introduced. But we can probably assume that it will be passed out of that committee with a obligatory, but ridiculous hearing and be passed onto the Senate Appropriations Committee again.
We will try to keep you informed on the issue as soon as we hear anything. Individually, you all need to contact your state representatives and let them know your objections to this bill. There is a possibility that we will be fighting this bill with every new legislative session, such as has been happening in PA.
Although NJCOFF's website is in dire need of updating, any information you need to use, especially the latest, is on the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) website at www.fluoridealert.org.
Contact your assembly and senate representatives to let them know your feedback, as well as Nellie Pou's office (and Governor Christie's office too!).
