(Worthy News) - The Ohio House on Wednesday approved legislation that would protect student rights to religious expression in public schools, including prayer, school assignments, artwork and clothing.
Lawmakers passed House Bill 164 by a vote of 61-31 and sent it to the Senate for consideration.
Sponsor Rep. Tim Ginter, R-Salem, said his “bill is not an expansion but a clarification (of) what students can and cannot do in religious expression.” [ Source: Columbus Dispatch (Read More...) ]
