Bill on Sexually Explicit Books Gets Final OK in Virginia

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
RICHMOND, Va. Mar 3, 2016, 1:20 PM ET

A bill that would force schools to notify parents if their children are to be assigned to read books with sexually explicit content is heading to Virginia's Democratic governor.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe has not said whether he will sign the bill, which a library expert says would be the first of its kind in the country.

The Republican-controlled House sent the measure to McAuliffe with a 77-21 vote Thursday. It passed the Senate earlier this week.

The bill would also require schools to provide an alternative to the sexually explicit book if a parent objects.
