Florida Evolution Bills Conflict

Florida Evolution Bills Conflict May 2, 2008

The St. Petersburg Times reports:

The House on Monday voted 71-43 for a controversial evolution bill (HB 1483) that adds to required public school curriculum a “scientific critical analysis” of the theory of evolution.

But the Senate rejected similar language last week, instead passing Brandon Republican Sen. Ronda Storms’ “Evolution Academic Freedom Act,” a more broadly worded bill (SB 2692) that spells out protections for teachers and students who question evolution.

The House version now goes back to the Senate for a vote, but even the bill’s sponsor says there’s no way the Senate will pass it. Gridlock – gotta love it.
