WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:

A bill being considered by the Florida Legislature that attempts to crack down on droopy pants in schools has lost some momentum.

Gov. Charlie Crist appears to oppose SB 302, saying “What’s important is what you learn, not what you wear.”

The state’s National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, or NAACP also opposes the bill. WMNF spoke with Norman Brown, president of the St. Petersburg chapter of the NAACP.

If SB 302 passes, students who wear low-riding pants to school could be suspended after a warning.
