Additionally, a psychologist or psychiatrist shall be required to don a white beard that is not less than 18 inches in length, and shall punctuate crucial elements of his testimony by stabbing the air with a wand.

The amendment, which was intended satirically, was passed unanimously but removed removed from the bill before it became law.
