Controversial Rule Demands Hygiene in Florida

Brooksville, Florida has passed a new rule requiring city workers to wear underwear and use deodorant while on the job. Brooksville's mayor, however, is skeptical of such intrusive lawmaking:

On Tuesday, [Mayor Joe] Bernadini said the dress code is a way to bring more professionalism to the city, but he said the undergarment proviso was "a little far-fetched."

"I think in a way it takes away freedom of choice," Bernadini said.

Mayor Joe Bernadini, the average Brooksville, FL resident salutes you. My home state, ladies and gentlemen. Always progressing.
