The Florida House has now passed a new bill that would ban sexual orientation from being discussed with elementary school students in the state.

As The Daily Wire reports:

The Florida House Education and Employment Committee passed a bill on Thursday that would ban teaching about sexual orientation and gender ideology in the state’s elementary classrooms.

HB 1557, the “Parental Rights in Education Bill,” proposes that, “A school district may not encourage classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity in primary grade levels or in a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students.”

The bill also allows for a parent to pursue “injunctive relief” against a school district for violation of the bill.

The video also noted school administrators will be required to notify parents if there are any changes to a student’s “mental, emotional, or physical health or well-being.”

The bill was sponsored by Joe Harding, a Republican representative.

Chasten Buttigieg, the husband of Biden Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was not happy with the proposal:
