On Denatonium Benzoate

The following brief note was sent off to my state representative, Tom Nelson, on February 7, 2008. If any response is received, I will be sure to post it here.

Note to Rep. Nelson

I have been reading about Denatonium Benzoate, and how adding it to antifreeze would very likely reduce the deaths and illnesses caused by children and animals who naively drink it.

Oregon mandates that Denatonium Benzoate be added to antifreeze. Does Wisconsin have any such law, and do you think it should? At a cost of 2 cents per gallon (estimated), I don’t see how this could be a bad idea.

One website with information is here:

Please let me know!
