On Thursday the Arkansas House Education Committee passed S.B. 662. The bill already unanimously passed the Arkansas Senate.
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.
The bill now goes to the entire Arkansas House of Representatives for consideration.
