A proposed bill would make it illegal to conceal your identity in Tennessee, meaning no one can wear a hood, mask or any other item to hide their face while on public property.

House Bill 1629 says that anyone who intends to conceal their identity by wearing a mask, hood, or device by which a portion of their face is concealed on public property would be a Class A misdemeanor.

It also included private property, saying it was be an offense to wear the mask or hood on anyone’s private property without getting the owner’s permission.

However, it would not apply during a holiday such as Halloween or for anyone dressing for a sporting activity, trade, occupation, theatrical production, parade or masquerade ball.

The bill will be considered soon by lawmakers.
