Fallin signs bill to require Pledge of Allegiance

Posted: Updated:
  OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ The Pledge of Allegiance will be recited in public schools in Oklahoma at least once a week under a bill signed into law by Gov. Mary Fallin.
 
   The bill making the Pledge of Allegiance mandatory was one of 17 measures Fallin signed into law on Tuesday. Existing law requires the posting of a notice in a ``conspicuous place'' that students not wishing to participate in the Pledge of Allegiance shall not be required to do so.
 
   Another one of the bill's Fallin signed makes it easier to become an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper. Requested by the agency, the bill lowers the age limit from 23 to 21 and reduces the educational requirements needed to become a trooper.
