Some Texas lawmakers say the school sideline is no place for kids to "bump and grind." Now they're trying to do away with what they're calling "suggestive cheerleading."
The Texas House has approved legislation that would ban risqué cheerleading routines at high school football games. The bill does not specifically define the term "sexually suggestive." Representative Al Edwards of Houston says there is no need for definition.
"Rather than try to describe it or make movements, if you're an adult, you've been involved with sex ever in your life, you know it when you see it," Edwards said.
Lubbock Representative Carl Isett voted in favor of the bill while Delwin Jones voted against it. Jones said such issues should be decided by parents and schools, not the legislature. The bill now moves on to the Senate.
