Legislation (A-3709) sponsored by Assemblymen Herb Conaway Jr. and Louis D. Greenwald (D-Camden) to require the fluoridation of all public water supply systems in New Jersey will be considered by the Assembly Health and Senior Services Committee.

The “New Jersey Public Water Supply Fluoridation Act” would require all public water systems in the state be fluoridated within a year of the bill becoming effective.

“Water fluoridation is safe, effective and healthy,” said Conaway, (D-Camden/Burlington), who is a practicing physician. “More than six decades of use, countless studies and the experience of millions of Americans tells us water fluoridation is effective in preventing cavities and is safe for children and adults.”
