      Story:
      House does an about-face on moment of silence law

      SPRINGFIELD - Just about six months after deciding to require Illinois children to observe a moment of silence every school day, House lawmakers voted Tuesday to take it back.

      The House voted 72-31 to end the mandatory moment of silence, wanting to give local school districts the option instead. The measure now goes to the Senate for further review.
