On Monday Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson notified the legislature that he signed S.B. 662 into law.

The measure is now Act 902 of 2021.

This good bill by Sen. Ricky Hill (R – Cabot), Sen. Missy Irvin (R – Mountain View), and Rep. Cameron Cooper (R – Romance) establishes the last Wednesday of September as a Day of Prayer for Arkansas Students every year.

S.B. 662 calls on the citizens to “pray, meditate, or otherwise reflect upon” students, teachers, school administrators, and schools across the state. It is similar to a law in Kentucky.

It’s a really simple bill, but it’s a really good measure that does a lot.
