"In God We Trust" Reaffirmed as National Motto
The U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday passed, 396-9, a concurrent resolution reaffirming In God We Trust as the national motto.
The resolution was introduced by Rep. J. Randy Forbes (R-Va.), co-chairman of the Congressional Prayer Caucus. It is a concurrent resolution because the Senate already passed a similar resolution in 2006 for the 50th anniversary of In God We Trust as the nation's motto. Resolutions do not carry the force of law and do not require the president's signature.
