Congressional Resolution Recognizes Water Fluoridation on Its 70th Anniversary
September 11, 2015
Dentist lawmaker Rep. Mike Simpson (R-Idaho) on Thursday, Sept. 10, introduced House Resolution 416
, recognizing community water fluoridation as a “vitally important public health initiative” on its 70th anniversary. Original cosponsors to the resolution are: Reps. Tom Cole (R-Okla.); Phil Roe (R-Tenn.); Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.); Jackie Speier (D-Calif.); Brian Babin (R-Texas); and Gregg Harper (R-Miss.).
A resolution is purely a ceremonial instrument, and does not have the force of law. Nonetheless, the ADA thanks the members of Congress who introduced or cosponsored H.Res. 416.
