Tennessee State Representative - District 68

Nashville, TN – Next week, the full House will consider legislation that seeks to place the nation’s motto, “In God We Trust,” in all Tennessee schools. House Bill 2368 calls for the motto be displayed in a prominent location. The establishment of this motto was signed into law in 1956 by President Eisenhower, but was imprinted on U.S. coins and currency long before that time.

According to a 2003 joint poll by USA Today, CNN, and Gallup, 90% of Americans support the inscription “In God We Trust” on U.S. coins.

In 2006, on the 50th anniversary of its adoption, the United States Senate reaffirmed “In God We Trust” as the official national motto of the United States of America
