Bill Bans Some Teen Modeling

April 2nd, 2008 by flanews

The state House gave tentative approval Wednesday to a bill dampening teen modeling web sites. The sites often recruit young girls and have them pose provocatively. The bill defines what is harmful to minors. Sponsor Ron Schenck of Spring Hill says the legislation will stop people from preying on children.

It really gets at these teen modeling sites that are based here in Florida. The sites are really almost a cancer on our society. They show girls as young as 13 scantily clad and sometimes topless, and they are able to do this because the parents give consent. So what the bills does is make it illegal, regardless of whether the parents give consent or not. Its one of these bills thats going to protect my kids when they grow up and protect everyones kids and grandkids in the state of Florida, said Schenck.

The bill will clear the House at its next meeting. It must still be heard in the Senate.
