PA House Passes “In God We Trust” Bill

But ACLU warns of suit against schools that choose to post the motto.

“Legislation that would allow schools to display the national motto “In God We Trust” and the Bill of Rights passed the state House on Monday by a 172-24 vote,” the Patriot-News reports. “The bill, sponsored by Rep. Rick Saccone, R-Allegheny, doesn’t carry any mandate for schools. But Saccone said it informs schools that they would have the state’s permission to post these patriotic displays.”

The bill now goes to the Senate; the ACLU has warned it might file a lawsuit against schools that post the motto.
