State Takes Up Pledge of Allegiance Bill

EUGENE, Ore. — State lawmakers held a hearing Monday on a bill that would require that Oregon students say the Pledge of Allegiance every day.

Right now, that’s only mandated once a week.

Students told KEZI 9 News going through the pledge every day would be too much.

“I think every week which we do at Sheldon seems alright because it reminds everybody, but then people don’t participate. I think every day they would, but it would get kind of annoying,” said Sheldon High School student Ian Adair.

House Bill 3014 would also require every classroom to display a U.S. flag.
