The Wisconsin State Assembly passed a bill Tuesday that would require tax-supported venues to play the national anthem in the opening ceremony of sporting events.
“I strongly believe we need to play it, particularly where we’re at now in our country,” bill sponsor Rep. Tony Kurtz said, according to WISN Channel 12.
Kurtz hastened to point out that his bill only applies to venues supported by tax dollars, and he did not want to restrict private organizations such as softball leagues or local youth sports. “I didn’t want to narrow it down. The community can determine,” the Rep. said.
Still, the bill has no penalties or enforcement clause. “I don’t want to make it enforceable. I want people to voluntarily do that,” Kurtz said. (Read more from “State Passes Bill Requiring National Anthem To Be Played At Sporting Events” HERE)
