SALT LAKE CITY — Sen. Aaron Osmond wants every public school classroom to recite the Pledge of Allegiance every day.
The South Jordan Republican also wants a student to lead the pledge each day as assigned by the teacher on a rotating basis.
Currently, state law calls for elementary school students to say the pledge each day, while secondary students must do it once a week at the beginning of a day. SB223, which was introduced Wednesday, would require all public schools to recite the pledge daily.
