Illinois General Assembly - Bill Status for HB4180

Illinois General Assembly - Bill Status for HB4180: "Amends the Silent Reflection and Student Prayer Act. Changes the short title of the Act to the Student Silent Reflection Act. Allows a teacher to conduct (instead of requiring a teacher to observe) a brief period of silence at the opening of every school day with the participation of all pupils assembled. Provides that this period shall be an opportunity for such silent reflection as may be desired by each individual pupil (instead of an opportunity for silent prayer or for silent relection on the anticipated activities of the day). Effective immediately."
The Illinois House of Representatives has passed a bill doing away with the mandatory moment of silence. Now what will the Senate do?
