Orlando’s Fox affiliate reports:
Identical Florida House and Senate bills, entitled “Protection of Children,” go after hotels and restaurants that allow children to attend what the bills call “an adult live performance.” While drag isn’t mentioned by name, the bills define the performances as depicting or simulating nudity, sexual conduct or excitement, or “the lewd exposure of prosthetic or imitation genitals or breasts.” “Adult entertainers should not be performing for children. Period. Full stop,” said State Rep. Randy Fine [photo].
The bills would give the state the power to fine a restaurant or hotel hosting an adult live performance where children are present. They could face a $5,000 fine for the first violation and a $10,000 fine for the second violation. The state would also have the power to suspend or revoke their licenses. Parents, too, could face up to a $1,000 fine or a year behind bars for bringing their child to one of these performances.

State Rep. Randy Fine last appeared on JMG in May 2022 when he tweeted what many interpreted as a threat to assassinate President Biden.
Before that, Fine appeared on JMG when he called for felony charges after Florida Democrats staged a sit-in over the racist US House map submitted by DeSantis.
And before that, he appeared here when he threatened to defund a Florida Special Olympics event and called a local school board member a “whore” because she’d been invited its fundraiser gala and he was not.
Fine is a sponsor of the bill that stripped Disney’s self-governing status. His family owns annual passes to the “woke” theme park giant. He recently arranged for a Florida town to honor a war criminal who was convicted of executing four Iraqi prisoners.
This MAGA-Republican argues we don’t need violent history checks on firearms by violently threatening the President. This is exactly why we need gun discipline in America. https://t.co/yUSED0elr1
