Statewide Pledge of Allegiance bill passes
PIERRE -- A requirement that South Dakota schools give students time each day to salute the U.S. flag and recite the Pledge of Allegiance won final legislative approval Tuesday.
Senators voted 35-0 for the measure. The House of Representatives had approved it 70-0 two weeks ago.
Next stop is the desk of Gov. Dennis Daugaard for his decision whether to sign it into law.
