V. Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag
After approval of the Journal, the Speaker recognizes a designated Member to lead the House in the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag. The Member designated alternates between the majority and minority party on a daily basis. The Member is usually informed in advance if he or she is the designated Member.
I pledge Allegiance to the flag of the
United States of America and to the
Republic for which it stands, one nation
Under God, indivisible, with Liberty and
Justice for all.
