Critically important legislation???

Florida moves to ban fake testicles on vehicles

April 25, 2008 - 3:06PM
Source: ABC

Senators in Florida have voted to ban fake bull testicles that dangle from the trailer hitches of many trucks and cars throughout the state.
Republican Senator Cary Baker, a gun shop owner from Eustis, Florida, called the adornments offensive and proposed the ban.
Motorists would be fined $60 for displaying the novelty items, which are known by brand names like 'Truck Nutz' and resemble the south end of a bull moving north.
The Florida Senate voted last week to add the measure to a broader transportation bill, but it is not included in the House version.
In a spirited debate laced with double entendre, Senators questioned whether the state should curtail freedom of expression in vehicle accessories.
Critics of the ban included the Senate Rules chairman, Senator Jim King, a Jacksonville Republican whose truck sported a pair until his wife protested.

Probably not critical for Florida, but KY could use it.
