The Louisiana house criminal justice committee on Monday unanimously approved a bill that would ban public sex, The New York Times reports. Those found violating the proposed laws would face up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fine. State representative Daniel R. Martiny said he proposed the bill after viewing what he called a "very graphic, very offensive" video showing public sex that was made by the Reverend Grant Storms during the New Orleans gay and lesbian festival Southern Decadence.
