The Evolution Academic Freedom Bill passed the Florida Senate by a vote of 21-17. The blog of the Florida Citizens for Science has the details
. The bill passed despite the dire warnings of costly lawsuits, high-tech businesses avoiding Florida, Florida becoming the laughingstock of the world, etc.. A big problem now is that the House version of the bill is quite a bit different from the Senate version.
Also, the NCSE reported that an academic freedom bill passed
in the Louisiana Senate's Education Committee and that a companion bill was introduced
in the Louisiana House.
