Legislation has been introduced in Springfield that would allow public school students to wear military uniforms during graduation ceremonies. State Representative Dan Swanson of Alpha explains the motivation behind his bill.
House Bill 5661 requires that the student must have completed basic training for and is an active member of a branch of the United States Armed Forces and is in good standing with his or her branch of the United States Armed Forces. The legislation was approved in committee this week and now moves on to Illinois House.
