BATON ROUGE, La. – A state representative in Louisiana proposed a measure Wednesday that would have required strippers in the state to be no older than 28 and weigh no more than 160 pounds. But then he pulled it -- but still.

Associated Press capitol reporter Melinda Deslatte reported via Twitter that the House was discussing a bill to raise the age minimum for strippers to 21.

During the discussion, state Rep. Kenneth Havard, R-Jackson, proposed an amendment to the bill that would make it against the law for strippers to be older than 28 and weigh no more than 160 pounds.

According to Deslatte, state Rep. Julie Stokes, a Kenner Republican, was outraged by the amendment, telling her colleagues that she’s “never been more repulsed to be a part” of the Legislature.

Havard apparently pulled the amendment from discussion, and the state House unanimously approved the bill to raise the age minimum for strippers to 21. It’s headed to the governor’s desk for his signature.

Havard said it was a joke, though the amendment was filed and available on the Legislature' website.
