Senate To Debate 'In God We Trust' Requirement For Schools

Sen. Regina Barrow's proposal to put that requirement on the books passed a Senate education committee Thursday without objection.

The Baton Rouge Democrat says the measure is intended to combat a "moral decay" in schools. There was little discussion of the legislation, beyond some senators praising the intent of the proposal.

The bill now moves to the full Senate for debate.
