It wasn't just gay marriage and a property tax cap that concerned state lawmakers in the final days of the legislative session.If people are stupid enough to put their kids to bed with the cups, no amount of warning labels will help. But surely the government will come up with some creative solution to that problem.
There were also sippy cups.
The Legislature, for the second year in a row, approved a measure requiring baby bottles and sippy cups to have warning labels about the dangers of childhood tooth decay.
Ex-Gov. David Paterson vetoed last year's measure.
"I can show you photos of children who go to bed with sippy cups," said Mark Feldman, executive director of the state Dental Association, which pressed for the bill.
"All you see is little black stumps that is all that is left of the teeth," he added.
