 Mississippi legislators recently proposed a bill that would ban fat people from eating in restaurants! Fortunately, it was withdrawn.

Massachusetts takes a different path.

Our proposed bill, MA H.1844, will add height and weight to the existing anti-discrimination law!

YOU CAN HELP!

There will be a vital hearing at the State House in Boston on March 25 at 2 p.m. The more people there the better! Please come with friends and show your support. If you have a story of discrimination, you can testify!

MA residents, please contact your local legislators, ask them to support the bill and call you back with their stance: http://www.mass.gov/legis/ or http://www.wheredoivotema.com/bal/myelectioninfo.php or 617-722-2000

IT'S NOT IN CA...BUT COME ON!

hey just browsing through livejournal and thought you seemed pretty cool/interesting (so hopefully you dont mind that I add you).

I totally didnt hear this and I live in Rhode Island, but I find this completely hilarious. Massachusetts is going crazy passing a lot of weird laws. Outlawing online poker, banning fat people from eating in restaurants, whats next?
