It really isn’t doing anything substantial to change the existing Alabama law. As with Ga law, all public schools in Alabama are already required to “afford all public K-12 students an opportunity each school day to voluntarily recite the pledge of allegiance to the United States flag”. (Section 16-43-5, Code of Alabama 1975) The minor edits seem to only require that the schools conduct the Pledge at the beginning of the day. Seems to be much ado about nothing…other than some re-election campaign mailer fodder. HB 339 Alabama April 22, 2019 7:39 AM Log in to Reply DrMonicaHenson John, there may be some schools that have not been making the Pledge part of their daily routine, and this is requiring that they do so. I would imagine that there are some schools with a significant number of students who opt out of saying it, and so the schools aren’t making it an issue. This is pure speculation on my part. I am heartened to see in the era of heartbeat bill attempts to overturn established case law and precedent that at least the Alabama legislature realizes that, while they can force schools to conduct the Pledge, they cannot force anyone to recite it, as this was decided decades ago by the SCOTUS.

April 22, 2019 1:06 PM Log in to Reply Gregs Obstruction of justice. Mueller made a tremendous case for obstruction of justice. He may not have indicted Trump because of the DOJ guidelines, however, reading the report makes clear that Trump tried to influence and intimidate witnesses. He also lied repeatedly and order others to lie. He was smart not to give an interview to the special counsel because he can’t stop lying.

At which the accused would get the chance to defend themselves.
