Public water systems could be required to notify Missouri customers before eliminating fluoride from drinking water.
The Missouri House gave first-round approval Tuesday to the legislation. It would require notification at least 90 days before a vote to permanently cease fluoridation.
Water systems would need to inform customers, the Department of Natural Resources and the Department of Health and Senior Services.
The measure needs a second affirmative vote before moving to the state Senate.
The fluoride notification bill is HB1078.
