Lawmakers in South Carolina have proposed a bill to ban wearing saggy pants throughout the state.

The bill would make it illegal for someone to expose their skin or underwear by wearing pants "three inches below the crest of his ileum" — the top of the hips — according to WLTX TV. 

Violations would cost $25 for the first offense, $50 or 3 hours worth of community service for a second offense, and $75 or 6 hours community service for a third or subsequent offense, the report said.

The report noted that such violations would not be considered criminal or delinquent, and would not negatively affect state college or university financial assistance.

Timmonsville, a town in South Carolina, passed a similar ban in July 2016, First Coast News reported.
