Pennsylvania mulls In God We Trust plaques at all schools

A lawmaker in Pennsylvania is pushing for the same motto on the nations currency to be placed on prominent display at all of the schools in the state: In God We Trust.

Republican Rep. Rick Saccone sponsored the bill, and its already passed the House Education Committee, 14-9, Fox News reported. Called the National Motto Display Act, the bill is aimed at promoting history, Mr. Saccone said.

Its 500-to-1 back home; people are for it, he said, Fox News reported. Im sure the medias going to try to beat it down. Thats par for the course.

The bill recognizes former Pennsylvania governor James Pollock, a 19th century leader, for adding the motto to coins during his service as U.S. Mint director.

The bill specifically calls for all schools in the state to post the motto on a plaque, piece of artwork or by some similar means.

 Mr. Saccone has previously sponsored a day of prayer resolution that called for April 30 to be named National Fast Day, akin to what President Lincoln declared 150 years ago, Fox News reported.
