JUNEAU (AP) -- A bill requiring a daily recital of the Pledge of Allegiance in schools passed the Senate on Monday.
The measure originally sponsored by Rep. Jeannette James, R-North Pole, does not require students to actually say the pledge. They can remain respectfully silent instead.
The version passed 16-0 by the Senate requires a daily recital of the pledge. The version passed by the House last year only required a regular recital. The measure now goes back to the House for a vote on the Senate changes.
