Former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has criticized Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis over his state’s so-called “Don’t Say Gay” law he signed last year.
The law, the Parental Rights in Education Act, limits discussion in classrooms about sexual orientation and gender identity while also restricting student privacy rights when confiding with school counselors or administrators about these topics.
The Republican-controlled Florida Legislature is also considering a bill that would prevent children from attending drag shows.
Hogan on Sunday told CNN’s “State of the Union” the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law is an “absurd” form of legislation. The former Maryland governor also criticized DeSantis for publicly arguing with the Walt Disney Company over the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law.
