Paddling Bill Passes House [Poll]

The spanking bill passed the Texas House on Thursday, a reversal from Wednesday when the measure failed. The bill passed by a vote of 87-56. The bill will now require that schools get parental consent before a school is allowed to paddle their child. Republicans were split on the issue with many urging their colleagues not to vote on the measure. Here are some other details from the Texas Tribune:

It passed after an amendment by state Rep. Warren Chisum, R-Pampa, was adopted that would exclude counties with a population of less than 50,000. An amendment by state Rep. Paul Workman, R-Austin, which would allow parents to forbid paddling of their children if they submit a written statement in opposition before the school year begins, was also adopted.

So what do you think? Should the state have left it to the local school districts or did they make the right decision? Vote and comment below.
