Why not just a bill that all doorways into restaurants can only be 28” wide.
Are they going to require restaurant owners to learn how to compute everyone's BMI?
Lordy! I hope I'm correct in thinking this won't reach Haley's desk.
"Anything for MS trial lawyers in need of a new cash cow, I guess."
Could be, I guess.
They've bled the tobacco companies dry.
Nothing lenient about the helmet laws in MS that I’m aware of, and I lived there 45 years.
What if an obese person wants to go to a resturant to eat “lean” “healthy” food as part of their diet instead of scarfing down a twinkie for supper at home?
I really can’t believe anyone in the Miss. House sponsored this bill, especially Republicans.
I noticed there were Republicans coming up with this crap. Unbelievable.
“..called lead author, Rep. Mayhall, and asked if this was serious legislation or tongue-in-cheek to make a point. He kindly took a moment to answer my question while the legislature was in session. He said that while, regrettably, he doesnt believe his bill will pass, this is serious. He wrote it, he said, because of the urgency of the obesity crisis and need for government action. He hopes it will call attention to the serious problem of obesity and what it is costing the Medicare system.
So does it only apply to people on medicade, medicare? If so, it would almost make sense. They should cut off their food stamps too though and make them do some useful form of work for all that money they are getting.
Alabama is actually a very nice place to live. In fact, you will not find more conservative states than Alabama and Mississippi.
Should have included grocery stores.
Yup.. and we TRIED to tell the anti smokers that their FOOD was the next Tobacco. They didn’t listen and now we get this.
I meant everyone, EVERYONE, should be forcibly starved to death by government edict, that makes sense right??
