Senate bill included amendment aiming to limit stripper weight
BATON ROUGE - A Louisiana Senate bill intended to restrict the age of employees at strip clubs included a proposed amendment to limit employed strippers' weights.
The amendment was with withdrawn before the House voted on the bill.
The original text of Senate Bill 468 banned strip clubs that served alcohol from hiring dancers under the age of 21-years-old.
According to online records, Rep. Kenneth E. Havard proposed an amendment that would also limit employees to be "between twenty-one and twenty-eight years of age and shall be no more than one hundred and sixty pounds in weight."
Havard, a Republican, represents portions of East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana and West Feliciana Parishes. He later withdrew the amendment and the bill was passed.
