(Bismarck, ND) — North Dakota lawmakers are introducing legislation to require the Pledge of Allegiance to be recited at board meetings statewide. The bill would apply to school board, industrial commission, emergency commission, and public service commission meetings. The proposal follows a controversy last year involving the Fargo School Board dropping the Pledge at meetings. The Fargo School Board quickly reinstated the practice. A separate bill would require executive branch officers and employees to participate the voluntary recitation of the pledge without altering its language.
