“Don’t Say Gay Bill” Returns To Legislature

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- One of the most controversial bills to go through the state legislature in recent years is back.

On Tuesday, State Senator Stacey Campfield re-submitted the so-called "Don't Say Gay" bill. The bill, actually called SB 0234 the "Classroom Protection Act", proposes to limit all sexually related instruction to "natural human reproduction science" in kindergarten through eighth grade.

The original bill, submitted in May 2011, included a proposal to ban the teaching of gay issues to elementary and middle school students. That bill passed the Senate but later died in the house.

The newly updated bill submitted by Campfield makes no mention of homosexuality.
