PRAYER AND PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Amends Constitution to reserve at least one minute at beginning of school day for voluntary devotion in public schools for kindergarten through 12th grade students. Prohibits discrimination against students who exercise religious freedom. Permits student religious clubs and possession of the Bible at school. Provides that the Bible is a recognized historical source and students may base reports on it. Mandates daily opportunity for students to recite Pledge of Allegiance and requires retention of the word "God" in the pledge. Requires publication of measure's provisions in student handbooks. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: This measure would result in public schools incurring some minor, primarily one-time costs to make information available to the public. These costs probably could be absorbed within existing school budgets.
