SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Sacramento officials are considering plans to close what some say is a loophole in the city’s public nudity ban.

The Sacramento Bee reports (https://bit.ly/1PdKahe) that a City Council committee is expected this week to fast-track amendments to the city’s code that would pretty much ban all public nudity.

Public nudity is currently prohibited in parks, playgrounds, beaches and nearby waters, but legal on city streets and sidewalks.

Randi Knott, director of government affairs for the city, says nudity is just as offensive whether you’re standing on a sidewalk or in a park.

Bob Morton, executive director of the Texas-based Naturist Action Committee, says Sacramento is overreacting and should be focusing on bigger issues.
