School Prayer NOT Coming to a Classroom Near You

Sen. Ronda Storms (R-Valrico), one of the upper chambers most controversial members, seems to have abandoned her campaign pledge to pass legislation that would allow prayer in public schools.

A proposal to allow prayer and other “inspirational messages” at school events, including student assemblies and sporting events, might be over before it started, after sponsor Sen. Ronda Storms, R-Valrico, postponed the proposal’s first Senate committee consideration and later told reporters there is likely not enough time to get it to the floor.

SB1360 gives school districts authority to allow the delivery of an “inspirational message,” including prayer or invocation, at noncompulsory high school events as long as a majority of students participating request the message and select a student to deliver it.
