Florida Saying “No, No, No”

ATLANTA (WAOK)- Florida Governor Rick Scott has been given a bill that would punish children wearing baggy pants.

The bill passed in the Senate and the House. If the bill is singed into law, it would punish children who wear baggy pants to school. Senator Gary Siplin is the bill’s sponsor. Senator Siplin felt obligated to create the bill, after he became informed about the origin of baggy pants.

Senator Siplin felt so strongly about the baggy pants epidemic, that he wanted those wearing them to be charged with a felony. However, legislators decided to require schools to take certain disciplinary actions when a student is caught wearing baggy pants.

Well hopefully Governor Rick Scott has his pen ready. A bill that would require welfare recipients to take drug test on a regular basis, has found its way to the Governor’s desk. The bill would allow only those who pass the test, access to their benefits. If the governor signs the bill, it could still be overturned if a court deems it unconstitutional.
