A Florida lawmaker there wants to repeal a decades-old ban on dwarf-tossing.

State Representative Ritch Workman says the move will allow little people more employment opportunities.

The popular bar activity was outlawed back in 1989. Safety concerns were at the top of the list for the ban, but Workman says why should anyone be denied a job with the current state of the economy.

Advocacy groups, including the Little People of America, don't support the bill and say it's dehumanizing.
