Legislators say the bills are an effort to push efforts to squash all vestiges of religion from the public square. Opponents called the bills election-year pandering and said the proposals are either unnecessary or unconstitutional.
A new bill from a Republican lawmaker in Alabama would require all schools to start each day with a 15-minute prayer session — just as Congress members do.
