"It just creates this ability to scrutinize women," said Jenny Eck, Democratic house member.

Lindsey Grovom - a woman - who drafted the bill, was surprised at the uproar. She said there was nothing overtly sexist about asking professionals to dress like professionals.

And what ever happened to the idea of "flattering"?
