Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear is still reviewing the legislation and declined to comment, through a spokesperson.
The bill is less than one sentence long. It requires -- in addition to the pre-existing mandate for immunizations -- the following:
... a dental health certificate from a dentist licensed in any state indicating the health of the child's teeth, jaws, and mouth.
Beshear is really taking his do-nothingism too far. At this rate, I can't wait to see him tackle anything like the public employee benefits disaster. Slots at the tracks, right Steve?
By the way, the story indicates a reporter tried in vain to reach Senate President David Williams for his opinion. That was unneccesary. The same bill died in a Senate committee just last year.
