Daviess Co. Commissioners Return Prayer To Meetings

The Daviess County Commissioners have returned prayer to their meetings.

The action follows the U.S. Supreme Court's recent ruling affirming the right of local governments to include prayers in official proceedings.

The commissioners unanimously approved a resolution Monday giving citizens an opportunity to pray at the beginning of public meetings in the county.

County Attorney Grant Swartzentruber says the opportunity to offer a prayer under the new resolution will be open to any citizen.
