Iowa: Senate Democrats Give in to Daily Pledge of Allegiance

Iowa Senate President Jack Kibbie said Tuesday the Democrat-controlled Senate will agree to a Republican request to recite the Pledge of Allegiance daily at the beginning of business.

Sen. Bill Dix, a Shell Rock Republican and former Iowa House member, proposed the daily pledge last week, saying, “We’re Americans every day.”

Senate members had been reciting the pledge once weekly on Mondays when they convened for daily business. The Iowa House recites the pledge each day.
