In re: Prohibiting Cities from Requiring Permits for the Singing of the National Anthem or the Recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance (S.7395-Felder/A.10007-Colton)

This bill would explicitly protect individuals and groups that wish to exercise their First Amendment rights to show their patriotism. Though a bill like this should be unnecessary, recent events reveal the need for clarification in regard to patriotic expressions in public places.
