BATON ROUGE, La. â€“ Gov. Mike Foster on Thursday signed into law a bill that restores silent prayers or meditation to government schools.
The new law reinstates protections that previously existed in the state but were altered in 1999 when Louisiana amended its law to include prayer spoken aloud. A federal judge later ruled the law unconstitutional. His ruling is under appeal.
Foster signed the bill without any comment, according to spokesman Steven Johnston.
Earlier in the week, Foster said he would probably sign the measure.
