The Philadelphia City Council voted 14-3 on Thursday to pass a bill allowing the city's Department of Licenses and Inspections to ban shop owners from protecting themselves and their employees with bulletproof plexiglass.
Philadelphia 8th District Councilwoman Cindy Bass, who sponsored the bill, said previously that having to see plexiglass represents an "indignity" to her constituents.
While the original bill demanded an outright ban be implemented immediately, the city council amended the bill to say "the city's Department of Licenses and Inspections has until January of 2021 to develop rules for the 'USE OR REMOVAL' of the barriers," Fox 29 reports.
From a legal standpoint, the Department of Licenses and Inspections could implement the ban tomorrow if they so please.
