Springfield City Council has tabled the resolution allowing the motto “In God We Trust” to be displayed in Council Chambers at City Hall or in a prominent location above the city seal. Council member Justin Burnett sponsored the resolution. He was against the motion to table it.
"I think it would be disrespectable to the audience that we have that's come out to speak to us to table it at this point. We have a lot of people that have come out just to speak to this agenda item--those for and those against, and I would like to hear the comments from them," he said.
