Droopy Drawers Bill Gets Tentative Approval from Senate

March 12th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

The Florida Senate has given tentative approval to legislation prohibiting students from showing their underwear at school. The so called droopy drawers bill would give students a pass on the first offense, but three day and ten day in school suspensions would follow if students continue to show their undergarments. Sponsor Gary Siplin says the idea is to eliminate distractions.

“In education, we teach our kids how to do arithmetic, how to type, how to drive,” Siplin said. “We should also teach our kid how to dress. And the way some of the kids are coming to school, showing their underwear, their g-string and things like that, that’s a distraction and we want to prevent that.”

The legislation still faces a tough time in the state House.
