TALLAHASSEE, FL (WWSB) - A house panel approved a bill that would require the message "In God We Trust" to be displayed at all public schools.

Supporters say the motto is a "foundation" of the state and country.  "In God We Trust" is included in state law as Florida's official motto.

The bill would require school boards to adopt rules ensuring that the motto would be displayed in a "conspicuous place" in each school.

Republican state representative Randy Fine supports the bill.
