MARION (KWWL) -
Prayers at public meetings -- it's a tradition for many government officials, including the Iowa legislature.
Earlier this week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that these prayers are constitutional and in line with long-standing traditions.
Now that the Supreme Court has made its ruling, the City of Marion is considering adding prayers before its city council meetings.
Councilman Paul Draper said he first proposed the idea last fall.
"I just thought that we needed some guidance before our meetings for both the council and the staff and the people that are there," said Draper.
Thursday night, the city council decided to create a subcommittee to develop a prayer policy for council meetings. The goal of this subcommittee is to create a policy that is inclusive for people of all religions.
Michelle Corless will have more on this story on the KWWL News at 5 and 6. But she'd like your opinions first -- what do you think of this proposal?
