"In God We Trust" in Ohio

A few months back (July 2006) Ohio governor Bob Taft signed a bill requiring all public and community schools to display donated copies of the national motto, "In God We Trust" and the state motto, "With God, All Things Are Possible". The bill requires public and charter schools using state money to display copies of the mottoes if they are donated for use in classroom, auditorim, or cafeteria. Three federal courts of appeal have upheld displays of the Ten Commandments in public buildings.

I am sure that various groups will begin court proceedings to attempt to strike down this bill, this will be interesting to follow.
