Texas hospital bans obese employees

VICTORIA, Texas -- A Texas hospital is banning the hire of job applicants that are too overweight.
Citizens Medical Center requires potential employees have a body mass index of less than 35. 
The hospital says it wants employees' appearances to be free from distraction for hospital patients. They believe patients have expectations that should not be ignored.
The ban is not illegal.

Weren't they supposed to wait a few years before trying this?
