Students in the US state of Tennessee might soon be required by law not to wear saggy trousers to school.
State MPs have passed a bill that prohibits them from showing underwear or body parts in an indecent manner.
Unlike a recent bill that failed,enforcement does not require a ruler – to measure how low someones trousers are sitting – or carry penalties of up to £157 and community service.
However,it does allow Tennessees school districts to decide punishments for those with saggy trousers and clothes that show too much skin on school property.
One student Trina Sanders expressed her concern about the proposed law.
“Everybody should dress how they wanna dress,its a free country,” she said.
However,schoolmate Aisha Williams added,”Then again… we dont wanna see your underwear.”
The bill passed overwhelmingly in the states senate and house of representatives,and now requires the governors signature.
If approved,the law would take effect on July 1.
