• National Anthem bill is pulled

    January 19, 2012 No comments

    An Indiana legislator’s proposal for a state law on how the national anthem should be performed won’t get a vote this session.

    The proposal from Republican Senator Vaneta Becker of Evansville would have required any performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” in any public place performed in its entirety and without embellishment. She had earlier proposed a bill for the state education department to set standards for singing and playing of the national anthem at public schools.

    The chairman of the state Senate’s education committee withdrew the bill from consideration Wednesday without giving an explanation.

    Becker says she doesn’t plan to push the proposal later this session and that her main goal was to draw more attention to the need for respect toward the anthem.
