LANSING (WTVB - Critics are calling it “feel good” legislation designed to appeal to the voters as the election draws near, but a bill headed to Governor Rick Snyder's desk to require every public school in Michigan to offer the Pledge of Allegiance each day won’t really change that much. 43 other states have a similar law on the books. State Representative Ken Kurtz voted in favor of the change.
The governor is expected to sign the legislation. It requires schools to offer the pledge, but not students to actually recite it. Also, the legislation requires each classroom to have a US flag.
