"In Newdow vs. United States Congress, a panel of the Ninth Circuit decided that the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools was unconstitutional."
- Sen. Green

 

"Relating to the Pledge of Allegiance."

Senate Joint Resolution 10 resolves that the Alaska State Legislature supports a review by the United States Supreme Court of the Newdow V. U.S. Congress decision.

In Newdow vs. United States Congress, a panel of the Ninth Circuit decided that the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools was unconstitutional. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals confirmed this decision and granted a 90 day stay to the California School District to appeal to the Supreme Court. If this decision is not reviewed, public schools in nine western states, including Alaska, will be banned from reciting the pledge.

SJR 10 expresses the support of the Alaska State Legislature for the review of Newdow vs. U.S. Congress by the United States Supreme Court and of our firm belief of the principles and ideals stated in our nation's Pledge of Allegiance.

I ask for your support in the passage of this resolution.
