It’s still on your money, why not … display our national motto in schools?
Pennsylvania state Rep. Rick Saccone, a Republican, has a controversial new proposal that is sure to raise the ire or church-state separatists. The lawmaker is proposing that the national motto “In God We Trust” be placed on prominent display at all public schools in the state.
Saccone’s proposed bill, titled “The National Motto Display Act” (House Bill 1728), has already passed the House Education Committee, The Washington Times reports. If adopted, it would mandate that schools place the motto on a plaque, a piece or artwork or on another similar placard within 60 days of its passage.
