The ACLU opposes HB 1306 / SB 613  on the grounds that prayer during a school-sponsored event is unconstitutional.  This bill attempts to mask its religiously motivated intent behind the guise of a public forum.  By emphasizing the voluntariness of the student-sponsored message or prayer, the bill attempts to circumvent the restrictions set out by the Supreme Court in Lee v. Weisman, and continue the practice of prayer in schools.



Delegates Metzgar, Afzali, Aumann, Impallaria, Jalisi, Long, McComas, McConkey, Reilly, and Rose, Senator Robinson
