Proposed “Hoodie” Bill to be Re-Written

A bill proposed that would have banned concealing your identity by wearing masks or hoodies is pulled.

According to our TV News Partner, WVLT some people heard about the bill and were livid. Some questioned why the lawmakers, state representative Bud Hulsey and state senator Jon Lundberg would want this legislation.

Rep. Hulsey said the intent was never to ban hoodies or other clothing articles people wear on their head and face, but instead make it illegal for those who would commit crimes with a hidden face during rallies and demonstrations.

Hulsey said the new version of the bill should be done by November 5.
