A new amendment to Florida’s controversial “Don’t Say Gay” bill would require schools to inform parents of their child’s sexual orientation within six weeks of learning the student isn’t heterosexual, NBC affiliate WFLA reported on Monday.

The amendment was filed Friday by the bill’s Republican co-sponsor, state Rep. Joe Harding. The bill bars educators in Florida from talking about sexual orientation or gender identity in primary schools.

Parents would be able to take legal action against school districts they believe have violated the measure. The original version of the legislation required schools to inform families of their child’s LGBTQ+ status but gave an option for exemption for the outing in cases where educators feared it could lead to abuse, neglect or abandonment.
