Tallahassee, Fla. — One Florida state senator is working to make sure you can wear your birthday suit, worry free, at the nude beach.
Sen. Jason Pizzo, D-Miami, wants to make sure folks who enjoy the states 34 or so nude beaches are not arrested and charged as a sexual predator.
SB 850 does not make it legal to expose one's sexual organs in public, but does make it legal to be au naturale in the properly permitted areas,
Those areas attract about 2.2 million tourists each year pumping an estimated $7 billion dollars into the state’s economy.
There are cases where people have been arrested and charged while on clothing optional beaches.
“That’s ‘no bueno,’ as we say in Miami,” said Pizzo.
The bill has one more committee to pass before heading to the senate for a vote, and so far, does not have any opposition.
