Pennsylvania Lawmaker Wants to Ban Body Spray in Schools

Pennsylvania State Representative Marcia Hahn is proposing legislation banning the use of body spray in schools where students may have allergic reactions to fragrances.

The legislation was prompted by a student’s hospitalization following a severe allergic reaction to Axe Body Spray. However, Hahn knows such legislation could be problematic.

From Fox News:

Hahn does not think that’s a fair set-up for the student, but even she knows regulating fragrance use among teens eager to drench themselves in Britney Spears’ latest scent is a challenge, even legislative overreach. She thinks her proposal, though, could at least start talk about a tough subject. 

“If you have a piece of legislation and it’s not enforceable, it doesn’t really help,” she said. “So I’m hoping that we can come up with a solution that works for everyone.”
