Kentucky lawmakers have advanced a bill to require public schools to display “In God We Trust” prominently.
The measure easily cleared the House Education Committee on Wednesday and now moves to the full House.
The bill calls for the national motto to be displayed prominently in public elementary and secondary Kentucky schools beginning in the 2019-2020 school year.
It defines “prominent location” as a school entry way, cafeteria, or common area.
The bill said the display may take the form of, but is not limited to, a mounted plaque or student artwork.
