State Rep. Jack Ladyman, R-Jonesboro (left), is congratulated Thursday by Rep. Donnie Copeland, D-North Little Rock, after Ladyman’s legislation on water fluoridation passed the House. State Rep. Stephen Meeks, R-Greenbrier (right), also backed the bill which lets local water systems — instead of the state — decide whether to add fluoride.

The Arkansas House approved legislation Thursday that would allow water providers, cities or other local entities to decide whether to add fluoride to the water supply.
