This legislator must be a Baptist.

Arizona Republican State Representative Kelly Townsend is trying to revise a law that made potluck meals held outside the workplace illegal.

She believes the current law was a "big legislative oversight" and says the spirit of the bill never was intended to ban potlucks outside the workplace.

According to a Feb. 17, 2016, UPI story, “The potential change in legislation came after health officials in Pinal County ordered a group of residents in Apache Junction trailer parks to stop holding neighborhood potlucks.”

"Out in our district, we had some pretty serious issues with folks shutting down any kind of potluck that did not happen at a workplace," Townsend said. "It seems funny on one hand, but on the other hand, people's rights are being infringed."

Next, how about making dinner-on-the-grounds the state meal?
