Borough Mulls Prayer Policy Ruling from Alaska Supreme Court

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Kenai Peninsula Borough’s legal department is carefully considering the next step following the Alaska Supreme Court’s ruling that the KPB Assembly’s prayer policy violates the State Constitution. In 2016 the borough assembly changed their meeting policy in an attempt to be inclusive of all religious groups. During Tuesday’s Regular Assembly meeting, KPB Mayor Charlie Peirce encouraged assembly members to read the 30 plus page court ruling in it’s entirety while the mayor’s office works with the legal department to recommend a course of action for the assembly to vote on. KPB Mayor Pierce: “We’ll go through the legal department and look at the existing policy or practices that are being followed and we will follow the directives of the court on the interim. And, again, you’ll have an opportunity to decide whether you choose to appeal the ruling or not.”last_img
