You don’t need to worry about wearing yoga pants in Montana — for now.
As we mentioned last week, a legislator in the state — in response to a naked bike ride — had tried to update the state’s indecency laws. And he was quoted as saying that yoga pants ought to be illegal, too.
Well, not to worry — his bill died in committee:
Members of the House Judiciary Committee voted unanimously to table House Bill 365, which Rep. David Moore introduced Tuesday.
The proposal would have expanded the definition of indecent exposure to include garments that give the appearance of a person’s buttocks, genitals, pelvis or female nipple.
The Republican from Missoula said he wouldn’t have a problem with people being arrested for wearing such provocative clothing such as tight-fitting beige garments. Moore also said yoga pants should be illegal.
Although members of the committee giggled about the bill, no discussion was allowed before a voice vote to table it.
I won’t be surprised if the next nude bike ride goes down Moore’s street.
Update: He’s claiming it was a joke. But really it might not have been.
