Lawmakers across the country are proposing bills similar to the Parental Rights in Education bill recently signed into law by Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, NPR reports.
“First Florida. Then Alabama. Now, lawmakers in Ohio and Louisiana are considering legislation that mimics the Florida law,” according to NPR:
And Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says he’ll make a similar bill a top priority at the next session. Across the United States, at least a dozen states are considering new legislation that in several ways will mirror Florida’s new controversial law, referred to by some opponents as “Don’t Say Gay.”
Gov. Ron DeSantis stood firm against ferocious opposition to the bill from both Democrats and the corporate media. In addition, Big Tech-allied entertainment mega corporation the Walt Disney Company has joined the fray, publicly excoriating the new Florida law, which prohibits teachers from discussing progressive conceptions of “gender identity” and “sexual orientation” with children under fourth grade in the classroom.
