Bill to Allow Bible Classes in Schools Awaits Governor’s Signature

Among the bills awaiting Governor Parson’s signature is one that allows public schools to offer elective courses in the Bible.

The sponsor of Senate Bill 34, Senator Karla May, says the courses should focus on the historical, political, and cultural impact and literary style of the Bible.

The bill also prevents schools from dictating which translation of the bible a student uses for class.
