The measure that prohibits discussion about sexual orientation in the classroom is a long way from passage with little time left in the legislative session.
House floor leader Representative Tim Jones, who schedules floor debates, says it's doubtful the bill will even come up for debate.
"You know, if the bill makes it to my calendar, I'll decide whether or not to bring it up. And if we have time and it depends on when it hits because now we're getting to that home stretch where I'm going to be looking more at Senate bills."
Jones says he does support the concept of the bill.
"You know, it simply stands for the proposition that certain things are appropriate to be taught in schools, and certain things are appropriate to be taught at home."
There's talk that the bill sponsored by south Missouri Representative Steve Cookson won't even make it to its first stage of consideration...that's a hearing before the House Elementary and Secondary Education Committee.
