Three legislators want to make it illegal for restaurants to serve obese customers in Mississippi.

House Bill No. 282, which was introduced this month, says: Any food establishment to which this section applies shall not be allowed to serve food to any person who is obese, based on criteria prescribed by the State Department of Health after consultation with the Mississippi Council on Obesity Prevention and Management established under Section 41-101-1 or its successor. The State Department of Health shall prepare written materials that describe and explain the criteria for determining whether a person is obese, and shall provide those materials to all food establishments to which this section applies. A food establishment shall be entitled to rely on the criteria for obesity in those written materials when determining whether or not it is allowed to serve food to any person.

The proposal would allow health inspectors to yank the permit from any restaurant that "repeatedly" feeds extremely overweight customers.

The bill, written by GOP Rep. W. T. Mayhall Jr., was referred to the Judiciary and Public Health committees, but The Jackson Free Press doesn't expect it to garner much support in the statehouse.

About two-third of Mississippians are considered overweight or obese, according to a recent analysis of federal health data.

Could this possibly pass?? Or is this a scare tactic? It is a serious problem, but I don't see how they can police this. Would you have to weigh in before being served? What next? Grocery store cashiers denying you from buying twinkies?

Well, there are a lot of fat people in Mississippi. Probably because of all the deep south cookin' and greasy fried shit people eat down there.

But if the fatties wish to further clog their arteries, more power to them. It doesn't affect me. I don't see why there should be any laws forbidding restaurants to serve the fatties. Let them eat. :P

If this passes, it's going to destroy a lot of businesses.

This is an abhorrent abuse of private business rights, and indirectly, the rights of obese people.

Just think, if health was perfect across the board, we'd have to fire all of those doctors.

KEEP EATING, FATTIES. YOUR WORLD NEEDS YOU.

No, this bill won't pass. Yes, it is a scare tactic. This is an infringement on any number of rights, and even if it did pass the supreme court would shoot it down in a heart beat.
