Apparently, after some pretty heated debate (go figure) the bill has gone to Gov. Rick Scott for approval. The sponsors, Sen. Gary Siplin and Rep. Charles Van Zant, argue that "returning organized prayer would help cure some the ills that have been plaguing public schools since it was banned by the U.S. Supreme Court."
Those opposed to the bill point out that it would violate the entire concept of the separation of church and state. "The reality is we are going to get sued on this," said Rep. Jim Waldman, a Coconut Creek Democrat who led the opposition. "It's not even a close call."
