SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — The Sacramento City Council voted to remove a decades-old city ordinance that requires people to stand at attention during the national anthem Tuesday.
The decision comes after an attorney filed a lawsuit against the city demanding for it to be removed.
”The city basically said that it is required to stand at attention during the national anthem. This is a 1928 ordinance,” Mayor Darrell Steinberg said.
It’s one of several old laws that remain on the city books. Others include a ban on selling violent comic books to kids and requiring licenses for astrologers.
