Relating to the duty of a water supply system to provide certain information to consumers regarding fluoride in drinking water.
This amendment singles out fluoride and would impose new costs and reporting rules on local Texas communities that are unnecessary.
The information this bill requires serves no other purpose than to alarm residents that there is something about fluoride to be concerned with and that the costs of fluoridating is more important than any other information about the operations of a community water system.
Water suppliers already provide annual Consumer Confidence Reports (CCR) as required by EPA. Fluoride is a constituent included in that report.
