CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) - A Caddo Parish Commissioner is following through with his promise to organize a grassroots effort to ban pajamas in public.

Commissioner Michael Williams says the wearing of pajamas in public is part of a moral decline in the entire country.

"I want to try to do something to save this country, and to save this generation," Williams said in a phone interview.

Part of his effort includes a flyer which asks you to "Please join Commissioner Michael Williams in banning the wearing of pajamas in public."

Williams will send this flyer, along with a letter, to retailers, churches, and elected government officials.

While some agree with William's effort, others believe taste and fashion cannot be legislated, and that it's unconstitutional and unenforceable.

Williams said it's being written to stand up to constitutional scrutiny and that the ordinance will provide an accurate definition of pajamas.

The ordinance has not been introduced yet, but it's expected to be presented at next week's Parish Commissioner's meeting.

A vote is expected in early March.
