Lawmakers crack down on Droopy Drawers

TALLAHASSEE, FL (WFLX) State lawmakers want to crack down on kids who wear their pants too low.

Legislation banning saggy pants students from sports, band, and choir classes is close to becoming Florida law.

The sponsor of the baggy britches bill said students need to learn how to dress for a more competitive job market.

Under the bill, the third time a student is caught showing their underwear, he or she will be banned from fun classes for 30 and will face in-school suspension.

Some lawmakers think the new measure goes too far.

"We may be concerned that this is addressing a larger social issue. The true addressing of that issues begins at home," said Dwight Bullard.

The bill has already passed the full Senate.

Today, it made it through its final House Committee stop and could be heard by the full House early next week.
