BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - The Biloxi City Council is considering an ordinance that would protect people riding on floats and marching in parades from throw-backs by spectators.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1z2QOym ) a first reading of an ordinance came Tuesday without comment. Council President Kenny Glavan later said that he’s had a couple of krews ask for the protection.

The ordinance says people sometimes throw beads and other items back on the floats where participants are occupied, potentially injuring them. Glavan said he reviewed a similar ordinance used New Orleans. A vote is expected at the next meeting on Dec. 30.
