Oklahoma could join a list of states where it is illegal to wear a hoodie in public, if a state senator’s proposed bill goes through.

Republican state senator Don Barrington has authored a bill to ban wearing a mask, hood or other face-covering in order to hide one’s identity in a public space, Oklahoma’s Channel 6 reports. The measure includes exceptions for holidays and special events like Halloween and religious beliefs.
