Florida Schools

In 2011, Florida Gov. Rick Scott approved SB 228, affectionately nicknamed the “droopy drawers bill,” which prohibited all public school students from wearing clothing that "is indecent, vulgar, or otherwise disruptive," including exposing one's underwear with overly saggy pants. Punishments included a verbal warning and extended to a three-day suspension upon subsequent violations.
