Pennsylvania Senate approves bills to display constitutional preambles in classrooms


HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Senate has approved two bills proposed by local 25th District Senator, Cris Dush, which would require all public schools in the state to display the preamble of both the state and federal constitutions.

Dush says the preambles would be displayed on mounted plaques, or through student artwork.

The Jefferson and Elk County Senator is hoping that by displaying the constitutional preambles, students will have a deeper understanding of how the founding documents directly impact our everyday lives.

Both bills have advanced to the PA House for consideration.
