Senate Panel Passes "Religious Expression" Bill

FRANKFORT, Ky. -- A Kentucky Senate committee approves a so-called "religious expression" bill.

It would allow students to take part in religious activities at public schools.  It also would allow teachers to use the Bible to teach about the history of religion and its role in the U.S. 

Opponents of the measure says existing law already protects students' speech and religious rights.

Republican Senator Albert Robinson introduced the bill after a Johnson County school removed biblical references from a presentation of "A Charlie Brown Christmas."
