FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) - A Kentucky lawmaker has pre-filed a bill that would require all schools to display America's national motto -- In God We Trust -- in a prominent area.

A similar law already exists in Tennessee.

The bill defines "a prominent area" as a school entryway, cafeteria or common area where students are likely to see the motto.
