IN GOD WE TRUST

State Representative David Standridge (R-Hayden) filed legislation that permits public buildings, classrooms, and law enforcement vehicles to display our national motto “In God We Trust.”

“Political correctness has gone too far when our national motto becomes unwelcome in public settings,” Standridge said.  “This bill makes it clear that schools, courthouses, law enforcement vehicles, public officials and government bodies may proudly display In God We Trust.”

The proposed legislation will be considered in a House Committee in the coming weeks before being debated by the entire House of Representatives.

Representative David Standridge has represented District 34 in the Alabama House of Representatives, which includes part of Blount and Marshall Counties, since a special election in 2012.  He was re-elected in 2014, without opposition, to a full term in the House.  In 2014, he was elected Chairman of the bipartisan House Rural Caucus.  Rep. Standridge, a retired law enforcement officer and Blount County Probate Judge/Chairman of the Blount County Commission, is married to Danna, a retired teacher.
